Mil Wexler was born in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and came to the United States as a young girl. As a young artist, Mil attended the Art Students League, the Brooklyn Museum, and the New School of Social Research in NYC.
Mil returned to Amsterdam and was an apprentice to the Dutch Painter, Jos Rovers, who taught her traditional studio chores such as grinding and mixing oils and tempera for her paintings. She also attended classes at the Rijks Academy in Amsterdam, which shaped her life as an artist today.
In 1973, she spent the summer on a scholarship in Ein Hod, an artist’s village in Israel, which led to her ongoing study of ceramics. She became a ceramic painter for Lapid Ceramic Studios in Yafo, Israel.
Upon her return to New Jersey in 1980, Mil taught painting in her own studio. In 1992, she studied ceramics at Thompson Park and Brookdale College while attending various seminars and workshops around the U.S. taught by leading ceramic artists. Then in 2005 received her MFA-IA from Goddard College, Vermont.
Mil’s teaching resume includes Ceramics: Thompson Park, Lincroft New Jersey where she reinstated the Raku classes, Ceramics, and Art Appreciation: Monmouth University, Ceramics: Brookdale College, New Jersey.
Mil is currently teaching Ceramics and Painting in her studio in Colts Neck, NJ as well as Ocean County College.
