Fiona Millar lives and works in the Scottish borders where she effectively balances 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 was an art dealer. 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’s art deco style floral and still life paintings have proved extremely popular with our clients and she became the first artist in the gallery to completely sell out after we opened in November 2008.

The gallery owners have a small collection of Fiona Millar’s work and have admired her various exhibitions over the years. She has exhibited throughout the UK and her recent solo exhibition held in the Borders was a sell out, as has been her work exhibited here in Gullane, proving that Fiona is developing quite a following with her paintings now becoming highly collectable.

During 2009 Fiona will have a constant presence in the gallery and her paintings for “The Gullane Masters” exhibition is the first showing of her 2009 collection.
