Each member of the Müllerhaus Legacy team shares a common passion: creative storytelling. Though our respective disciplines vary, each of us as an artist, writer, researcher or client liaison spends our days pursuing ways to not just express ideas, but to do so in a unique, interesting manner.
Douglas Miller, Principal
Douglas lucked out. No intervention was available for ADHD when he was young, so his creative oddities bloomed unencumbered. After struggling with early reading, his love for books exploded at age 13 when he fell in love with the union of Frank Frazetta’s fantasy art and Robert E. Howard’s pulp fiction adventures of Conan the Barbarian. He brings that same passionate thrill of discovery to every Müllerhaus Legacy project today—the firm belief that well-written adventures wrapped with visual beauty can enlighten even the most distant star.

Her ambitious career started as butterfly drawings on her mother’s church program but quickly accelerated to a second-place state fair ribbon for drawing when she was only eight. Laura progressed into art classes through high school and enrolled in the University of Tulsa, intending to pursue a graphic design degree. She then got sidetracked into art education; sidetracked into printmaking; and sidetracked into art history—only to fall in love and find herself drawn back to graphic design. Not unlike her favorite novel, The History of Love by Nichole Krass, hers is a journey of restless twists that tie into beautiful endings. Laura as she contemplates butterflies and the essence of love.
