FIONA MILLAR lives and works in the Scottish borders where she effectively balances her life as an artist with her role as a mother in a busy family home. She only seriously started painting several years ago and is self taught, although she originates from a family well familiar with the pressures of producing and selling art, as her father was an art dealer. Both her sisters studied art and being aware of Fiona’s natural talent they provided the encouragement and inspiration for Fiona to develop her own style both in content and application.Over the years Fiona has matured as a painter and produces much sought after work across varied subject matter. Her floral and still life paintings, often featuring flowers in a highly stylised vase, evoke Art Deco pieces. As such they are instantly recognisable - she has developed a style that is unlike that of any other artist working today. Alongside her still life, Fiona also paints rolling landscapes that recall idyllic pastures and are influenced by the hills and countryside of Galloway, often featuring distinctive belted Galloways.Fiona has exhibited throughout the UK with great success, and her works have rapidly become highly collectable.
