Marie Mills

Marie is an inventive artist who consistently pushes the boundaries of her technique, producing paintings that sing with her passion for life and the natural world.
Her technical skill as a painter combines with an in-depth knowledge of plants gained from her mother, a keen botanist and gardener. Whilst she began her working life as a nurse, a move to Cornwall in 2000 gave Marie the opportunity to begin painting full time. Asked to describe her technique, Marie says: ‘I take great delight in starting a new painting, brushing in the skies, this is the only time I use a brush; I then use pallet knives and my fingers to create the hedgerow.
