Paul Milner

 

Artist Biography:

Paul C Milner was born in East Yorkshire, where he still lives and works today. His first career was as a professional keyboard player in a well-known 1980s band but in 1994 his interest in art became an obsession, forcing a change in his career. He took up formal studies in Art in East Yorkshire, concentrating on watercolour, where some of his early paintings achieved success at the Hull Ferens Art Gallery. His early works featured unmistakably great British pastimes, beautifully-lit figures engaged in sporting activity and captured in landscapes or seascapes. In 1995, his career reached a much wider audience when he was selected with other world-renowned artists, celebrities, musicians and politicians to take part in The Prince's Trust's Mask Campaign. Paul Milner's mask, featuring a small child on the Yorkshire Coast, was selected from over 500 celebrity Masks to appear on the official poster of just 20 masks, alongside designs from Paloma Picasso, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, Richard Branson, Annie Lennox, Sting and others. In 1997 he began the series of figurative acrylic paintings which have become the hallmark of his work today. His work portrays timeless, elegant and feminine pastimes; cherished childhood memories; figures by the sea; long hot British summers and exotic retreats in an unhurried world..
