Fiona Millar lives and works in the Scottish borders, balancing her life as an artist with her role as mum 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 is an art dealer. Fiona had previously focused on her talent as a picture framer, but her flair for painting was obvious to her family. Both her sisters studied art at Art College 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 a varied subject matter. Her rolling landscapes are influenced by the rolling countryside and hills of Galloway while her still life pieces often feature the style and content of works of the 1930’s, no doubt recalling the paintings bought and sold during her father’s time in the art business.
Fiona has exhibited throughout the UK with great success, and her works are now becoming very collectable amongst art lovers.
