Six Responses: Millie Marotta

Six very different artists and creatives have been selected to spend one day each at Oriel Myrddin Gallery considering and responding to the ideas and aesthetics of our current exhibition The Building Project. Come along to the gallery to see what each artist is doing in-situ.

Millie Marotta / Saturday 16 February 2019  10am – 4pm

Millie Marotta is a freelance Illustrator working from her studio by the sea in a little corner of West Wales. She grew up on a smallholding in the hills of rural Wales and as a child was surrounded by nature in all its glorious forms. It was during these early years that she developed an obsession with all things flora and fauna and later went on to study Wildlife Illustration. This fascination with the natural world combined with an appreciation of decorative design and a keen eye for detail are at the core of Millie’s work.

Millie’s commercial work has covered a variety of platforms including editorial, packaging, fashion, retail, branding, textiles, homewares and interiors. In 2014 Millie released Animal Kingdom – A Colouring Book Adventure, which went on to become a Sunday Times and New York Times bestseller. The last few years have seen Millie delve into creating further books, exploring various aspects of the natural world. Above all else her intention is simply to create beautiful work, which both captivates and charms.

Millie is interested in the idea of nature taking over The Building Project installation and re-claiming the buildings and settlement in the gallery.
