Fiona MillaisFiona Millais: I paint the places and objects that I love and which inspire me. I grew up surrounded by the heather of the Surrey Hills and exploring the wild West Coasts of Scotland and Cornwall. My paintings are often a response to these landscapes and coasts, and they are evolved from memories and drawings. I walk out every day, with the dog and collect additional materials , so that stones, leaves and feathers become visual reminders of the place and time. I love the connection between the natural rhythms of the land and how it reflects our presence or the lack of it. The way that landscapes are shaped by ourselves and our ancestors, leaving marks and echoes through time. My canvasses are often painted and repainted so that traces of the original images remain present, creating layers of texture, colour and interwoven history. I studied Fine Art at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, graduating in 1984. My great-grandfather was the Pre-Raphaelite painter, Sir John Everett Millais.

Fiona Millais graduated from University of Newcastle with a degree in Fine Art in 1984. Her work has been extensively exhibited at venues including Thompson’s Gallery and Thackeray Rankin Gallery both in London and The Royal College of Art. Fiona’s paintings are often based on landscape or still life – of the coasts of Cornwall and Scotland, but are rarely a direct representation. Often produced on the completion of a journey – either abroad or within the British Isles and are evolved from memories, drawings and notes. Music and literature sometimes provide additional source material. Fiona will paint and repaint canvasses so that traces of original images remain present and her work undergoes a process of metamorphosis. In 2004 she was commissioned for the P&O Liner ‘Arcadia’ to produce 8 large works. Fiona is the great-granddaughter of the pre-Raphaelite painter Sir John Everett Millais. Exhibitions & Galleries:
