Millie McCallum went to Newcastle University and studied Fine Art. Since then she has established herself as a leading contemporary artist and has exhibited at numerous fairs internationally. The inspiration for her paintings comes from nature and she is particularly fascinated by birds and animals. She uses colour in a lively and bold manner so that her pictures are not simply studies of animals, rather they are portraits and capture their personality.
She makes paintings, linocuts, t shirts and cards and has recently started doing some pottery and screen printing, as well as been commissioned to do murals.
