Hailing form Akron, Ohio (Rubber Capitol of the World), Arthur joined the U.S. Coast Guard, married a girl from Medina, Ohio (Sweetest Town On Earth - the Honey Bee Capitol of the world) and then traveled the world to see if those things were true. They are. Following a 30 + year career in the Coast Guard, the Millers settled in Cape May, NJ (The Original Seashore Resort). Interested in turning since high school and following a 12 year stint as a destination resort facility manager, Arthur took up wood turning in earnest, making anything that stood still long enough into something round. As a beekeepers and makers of round things - Sweet N Round was born. As round things took over, it was decided additional outlets for round things was needed and at the same time, his work was recognized by others. The suggestion was made to "... give it a try, the Cape May Artists Cooperative Gallery". His work was found to be acceptable and he was welcomed into the CoOp. Many objects from the Sweet N Round studio are made from wood felled right here in Cape May County by the artist as well as woods from around the country and around the world.
