Holly Mills began her career as an illustrator and this interest in narrative and fiction continues to heavily influence her ever-evolving work. Much of Mills’s work can be seen as a visceral reaction to text that is not so much concerned with re-telling a story but more so in creating an emotive, atmospheric snap shot of a scene. Using these fragments of narrative, Mills invites the viewer to speculate her interpretation of the scene. The process of making - an experimental process of trial and error is an integral part of Mills’s mixed media works. Working across painting, printmaking, illustration and textiles, Mills draws influence from contemporary fiction, remembered journeys and imagined destinations. With a childlike naivety and pervading sense of unease: inspiration from the drudgery of modern day life starkly contrasts with vivid paintings of foliage and pattern. Holly’s eclectic practise intends to evoke mood and atmosphere through the use of bold layered colours and intense scratched lines. Recurring imagery of long limbed figures, blurred in movement create an almost dream like visual language.



Holly Mills (b. 1990, London) currently lives and works in London. She graduated from Camberwell College of Arts with a BA in Illustration in 2012, the same year she won the V&A student illustrator of the year award. Selected exhibitions include 35 Works on Paper and Contemporary Visions VII (Beers, London); Jungle Book Club (Book Club, London); Secret 7” (Sonos Studios, London) Pick Me Up (Somerset House, London) and the V&A Illustration Awards (Victoria & Albert Museum, London).
