Lisa Milroy(1959-), Artist
Sitter in 1 portrait
Born in Vancouver, Canada, Milroy studied at St. Martin's and Goldsmith's School of Art. Her trompe l'oeil paintings of rows of everyday objects in the 1980's were a fresh and revitalised form of still life. She has continued to investigate the nature of 'reality and illusion' particularly in relation to travel. An international artist, in 1989 she won first prize in the John Moores Exhibition in Liverpool and in 2001 she had a solo show at Tate Liverpool.
