Millie Kelly was born in 1993 in Teignmouth, Devon. Her recent paintings explore the imagined and natural world through caricature, figuration and at times, abstraction. Her love for painting and the inherent experimentation involved in the process is clear to see in a melee of techniques; heavily applied paint, staining, layering, and the use of oil bars. These works celebrate the honesty of workings-out on the canvas, where elements have often been rubbed away or painted over, leaving behind evidence of the painting's creation.
