I have long admired Japanese woodblock prints for their beauty of design, elegant line and subtle use of colour.  Japanese prints had a profound influence on European and English painting and posters when first discovered by Western artists in France and England in the mid-19th century.  Utamaro's beautiful portraits of women are particular favourites of mine and Utamaro's Beauty is my tribute to his art.

Getting to Know Tom

Thomas Miller turns his canvas into a time machine, bridging past and present. Inspired by still life and portrait paintings of the Renaissance and Baroque periods, Thomas mixes in touches of Modern Art. As time and technology march forward, Thomas sees art as the enduring expression of our shared human experience. Ever the history buff, Thomas enjoys referencing the great artists in his paintings - reinventing classic pieces by Vermeer or Ingres. Fun fact: Thomas spent 15 years traveling the world with the Mermaid Theatre as a designer and performer.
