In the Hollywood era of his life, his advertising talents were
exhibited at RKO Pictures and he worked directly with Howard Hughes.
The 4A Advertising Agencies and Fredrick's of Hollywood also
exhibited Milo's creative talents. Portraits were his specialties, as
was the anatomy of the human body.
Reno, Nevada became his home and he developed the business of wall
murals. A successful national mail order company that the customer could
paint by numbers for the mural of their choice. Many homes in Reno still
enjoy the tranquility of his art designs.
Once settled in Las Vegas, he was employed by the Department of Energy
with "Q" clearance. He was the Head of the Graphic Arts Department,
working there for 23 years.
The opportunity to expand his wonderous talents went to his love of
outer space and the dinosaur kingdom. His space oil paintings remain in
the Smithsonian Institute and were also enjoyed by Grolier Encyclopedia
for his artistic creation of the surface of Pluto. His dinosaur series
continues to tour US libraries.
He now resides outside of Las Vegas and enjoys the dark skies. His
love of horses came from his late wife's life and these memories
encouraged him to draw. It is a simple and final relationship for
this great artist to combine his love for the cosmos and his love for
the horse. The colors and conformations of the gases, dust, and comets
makes quite a thrill for the viewer's interpretation.
