Lisa Milroy is one of Britain’s leading painters. Born in Vancouver, she moved to England when she was just 18 and has lived in London ever since. She trained at St Martin’s School of Art and Goldsmith’s.
In 1988 she won the John Moores Prize for Painting; in 2002 her work was the subject of a major survey at Tate Liverpool, and in the same year she was short-listed for the Jerwood Painting Prize. In 2005 she was made a Royal Academician. She has travelled extensively, particularly in Japan – the influence of which can be seen clearly in her work. Collections featuring her work include the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Collection as well as the Arts Council of Great Britain, the British Council, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
Teaching has always been an important part of her career, in Britain and abroad; she has just taken up her post as Head of Graduate Painting at the Slade School of Art, London.
Lisa Milroy is represented by Alan Cristea Gallery.
