Izzy Miller was born in Hong Kong and has enjoyed living in the Middle East, Sweden, Italy and America. She relishes the opportunity to travel but has regarded the north of England as home since moving to the Peak District twelve years ago.
After atelier training at both The Swedish Academy of Realist Art, Stockholm and Angel Academy of Art, Florence, Izzy went on to complete a Fine Art degree at Lancaster University, securing a First. She has recently completed a Masters in Illustration at Manchester Metropolitan University with Distinction.
Izzy Miller has international collectors of her work with paintings in the Middle East, New Zealand, Europe, Australia and Asia. Recently she was invited to take part in an art colony based in a Macedonian monastery and has represented the United Kingdom in Abu Dhabi’s first Art Biennale. She loves working with traditional mediums such as charcoal and oil paint. She is happiest working from life, whether it be a portrait, landscape or still life.
Her work captures the colours and textures of her travels as she depicts bustling city scenes or peaceful pastoral landscapes. She is especially drawn to the beautiful, and her work is often soft and romantic in style. In the past year, Izzy Miller has worked as a Fact Painter for an internationally celebrated artist in London, she has exhibited her work in Manchester and Derbyshire and she is due to attend a biennale in Abu Dhabi this spring.
Her work is privately owned by clients in Australia, Germany, the U.A.E. America, Spain and Italy. She accepts commissions and is looking forward to expanding her portfolio. Much of Izzy Miller's work focuses on portraiture, which she continues to study in greater depth at art school and she creates detailed studies of people that she meets in oils, pastels, charcoal and pencil.
