Millie’s inspiration comes from the awe or emotional connection she feels to the subject she’s viewing (still life) or surrounded by (Landscape). Her favourite way to paint is definitely impressionistic. “I started with watercolour painting many years ago, in fact 40 years ago and have lately, fallen in love with the amazingly beautiful richness of soft pastel.”
Millie grew up in the Riverina in NSW and quite close to the Edward River, across the road in fact and she remembers summers swimming in the river and tying a rope to a gum tree limb and swinging out as far as possible and splashing into the water. “We loved it and had many hours of fun until mum called us in for tea.” She moved to Queensland in 2003 and lives on a small island called Coochiemudlo Island about 5 minutes from the shores of Brisbane (between Stradbroke Island and the mainland) and of course her artworks are heavily influenced by the island’s landscape.
Millie states: “I have to say that I have received awards in the past but my whole goal is to connect with the viewer/collector on a personal level. I don’t see artwork as a competition and perhaps that works to my disadvantage at times but I still take my work seriously and I am always working toward becoming better at my craft both in skill and self-expression.
Millie has a BA in Fine Arts and a MA specialising in Art Therapy.
Millie’s artworks are in national and international collections and she has been featured in various publications.
