Jonathan Millet lives with his wife, Jenni, and their four children in Rowlett, Texas where he works from his studio barn. His artwork is best described as a blend of abstraction and symbolism, which uses both found and invented personal designs. Jonathan's artwork has been exhibited in numerous group and solo exhibitions throughout the United States and overseas. Currently, he is exhibiting at the Mary Tomas Gallery in Dallas, Texas.

Jonathan first received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Biola University in Los Angeles, California in 1989. After graduation, he and his wife moved to New York where he received a Master of Fine Arts degree in printmaking from Pratt Institute. In 1991, Jonathan and Jenni moved back to their hometown of Dallas, Texas where he was hired to teach art at Trinity Christian Academy, a K-12 college preparatory school. Still at TCA, he is currently the Visual Arts Department Head in a recognized, award winning program. During summers for the past several years he has led student mission trips into Africa where his group provides food relief, water wells, construction labor, mission work, and, of course murals for the local people.

Jonathan and Jenni have four children. His youngest three children are all affected to different degrees by a physical disability. He and Jenni embrace their childrens' situation as a ministry and feel that because of this, they have gained unique insight and developed relationships with people that they otherwise might not have had the privilege of knowing. Jonathan's experiences from mission trips and personal life relationships such as these are often reflected in his artwork.
