Award winning painter at Thame art show 12 to 14th April
The painter, Paul Millichip, has lived and worked in Buckinghamshire for over thirty years. He moved from London to North Bucks to establish a painting centre from where he continues to work. Paul’s work has been bought for many Public collections including The Arts Council of Great Britain, Liverpool University, Leicester Museum and Buckinghamshire County Art Gallery, together with many private collections.
Two books by Paul Millichip have been published by B T Batsford, ‘The Travelling Painter’, and ‘Painting Light and Shade’. Both deal with aspects of painting in different countries under different qualities of light.
Paul Millichip has been concerned for many years with the development of art and art education in Buckinghamshire, and as an art adviser, helped towards the affiliation of the county to a regional arts association. He is a member of the Silbury Group, a group of forward-looking professional artists in Milton Keynes, and also exhibits, as an honorary member, with the Buckinghamshire Arts Society.
