Milly’s life has taken her to many different places across the globe. She was born in India, spent her childhood in Bhutan and worked in Nepal before moving to Norway. In 2003, Milly immigrated to Canada.
The opportunity to take a course in impressionist painting through Beaux Arts Brampton motivated Milly to pick up her paint brushes in 2010. Since then she has learnt from other artists and is working towards establishing her career as an artist.
Milly is a member of Beaux Arts Brampton, Visual Arts Mississauga and Associate Member of Society of Canadian Artists.
Milly has taken part in multiple juried shows and her work has been exhibited in Beaux-Arts Brampton, (BAB), Brampton City Hall, Helson Gallery in Georgetown, Etobicoke Civic Center, Visual Arts Mississauga-Riverwood (VAM), Buckhorn Fine Art Festival and Todmorden Mills, Toronto.
She has won awards in the Buckhorn Fine Art Competition, in 2017/18. The Society of Canadian Artists selected her piece, ‘Orange Tulips’ for the 50th International Open Juried Competition in 2018.
A keen gardener with a deep love for nature and the outdoors, the blooms in Milly’s garden and the places she has visited are the sources of her inspiration. Milly uses art to express her feelings, and to capture the beauty she sees around her. No matter where she is, she immerses herself in the moment. She harnesses the positive energy surrounding her and shares it with all she comes in contact with.
Her hope is that the sense of joy, peace and tranquility –she feels when surrounded by the beauty of nature is conveyed through her art. Milly’s art depicts subject matters she is passionate about–watching her garden grow and places that has travelled to that have left an impression. She is fascinated with flora and fauna., Her works are often the result of inspiration, created on canvas from memory and imagination. To create lifelike paintings she uses photo references.
Milly paints predominantly on canvas with acrylic as her chosen medium. She strives to create paintings that capture her own feelings of delight, hoping to make the viewers of her art feel happy and joyful.
Milly’s willingness to adapt and embrace all of life’s experiences influence her art form. Her painting style will evolve as her craft continues to develop.
She can be found painting on weekends in her studio in Williams Mill Creative Arts Studios in Glen Williams, Georgetown, Ontario.
“Painting is the passion that liberates my mind, allowing me to express my inner self”
