Valerie Miller, Steel Cow

Waukon, Iowa


Iowa artist Valerie Miller has been painting cows for over a decade.  She visits cows in fields across the country, naming each cow painting after her family, friends or people who have influenced her.   “The Girls,” as we call them, can be found in art collections worldwide.

Valerie is convinced you can do anything in the right pair of cowboy boots, and believes in supporting the environment by annually donating at least 1% of (Steel Cow)’s sales to environmental organizations.

Valerie studied art at Bradley University and business at the University of Iowa.  When Valerie is not painting in Iowa she enjoys traveling with her husband and two studio dogs, Nan and Frankie!
