Born in Glasgow, Catriona Millar studied at Harrogate School of Art and Grays School of Art, Aberdeen. Since her sell-out 2005 degree show she has exhibited across the UK & Europe including the Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh. In 2006 she came to the attention of Charles Saatchi with her first solo exhibition at the Dundas Street Gallery, Edinburgh. Catriona’s work is now in public & private collections throughout Europe, the Far East, Australia & America. Her paintings speak a universal language to all ages and many schools and colleges around the world study her work.

“Catriona’s work adds a fresh nuance to our stable of artists. Like many Scottish painters she is a true colourist.Colour and pattern define her work but beneath the surface they portray the full spectrum of the human condition – joy, hope, longing and melancholy- and often alongside an animal companion.” Elspeth Bray, former V&A curator, Deputy Editor of the Apollo Magazine and owner of the Moncrieff-Bray Gallery in Petworth.

‘Up close the viewer is tempted to reach out and touch the canvas, so packed is it with paint. While this might be seen as simply a preferred painting technique. the depth of character and subtle nuances of narrative that Catriona Millar achieves is what sets her figurative work apart from anything else you’ll see.’ – Homes & Interiors Magazine
