Denis Milhomme
Born 1954, in Lowell, Massachusetts; lives in Three Rivers, California

DURING HIS CHILDHOOD
in Massachusetts, Milhomme confesses that he began his “courtship” with nature, after “falling prey to the charm of the wilds.” After moving to California, he was captivated by the California and Arizona deserts, frequent subjects even today.

Milhomme studied art at the Ultima Yellowstone Art Symposium, the Scottsdale Artists’ School, and Santa Ana College in Orange, California. He continues his education by attending workshops and constantly looking at the sights around him. A painter of moments, it is his goal to share, through his art, his deep appreciation for those moments when he is awed by nature’s beauty.

As the stillness of evening descends upon this beautiful small lake in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado, a feeling of peace surrounds you. The colors of autumn are a feast for the eyes and the timeless majesty of nature again soothes the soul.
