Born in County Down, Ireland in the 1970’s, the self taught artist has painted for as long as she can recall. Her paintings focus mainly upon nostalgic sunny days at the beach. There is an underlying warmth to her work. The windswept scenes conjure childhood memories of sunshine and sandcastles. The subject matter is perhaps influenced, not only by memories but many years spent painting in Tenerife.
Having painted professionally since the 1990’s, the work has captivated the hearts of art collectors in Ireland. Millar applies thick oil paint with broad energetic strokes of the palette knife to create an impasto effect which brings the images to life.
The paintings can be viewed in many galleries and private collections mainly in Ireland. However the artist is increasingly exhibiting as far a field as the United States and New Zealand. The overwhelming demand for paintings ensures Lorna Millar’s position as one of Irelands most collectible artists.
