MILLICENT STRAKER

Millicent is a British artist based in London whose practice focuses on drawing and a variety of printmaking techniques. Millicent has recently graduated from Camberwell College of Art with a Masters in Fine Art Printmaking, and a winner of The Artichoke Print Workshop Prize 2020.

Millicent’s work is deeply informed by colour, light and the fragility of the natural world. Her work has gentle references to wide coastlines and mountainous landscapes. Her signature blends of pinks and blues invite the viewer into at times a tranquil landscape and at others into an ethereal stillness. The artist’s work stems from sketches, notes and photographs made within the landscape, which are then revisited later in her London studio to work from. This juxtaposition allows her to view the landscape and skies in the context of memory, fading to a raw essence of emotion, strong and strange. Millicent’s work is held in private collections in the UK and internationally.
