Jean Miller Paintings

Limited Edition Prints by Jean Miller

Jean Miller 1929 - 2014

Jean Miller began her life in a boys' Prep school; from 1938 she went on to act and dance on her uncle's stage at The Theatre Royal, Windsor. After training at ballet school, she performed with Hermione Gingold before progressing to a starring role with Dame Flora Robson. Following her marriage to the late actor, Michael Miller, she reared three children. Thereafter her career took a varied path; she market gardened, made game pies and pates and cooked directors' lunches.

After her husband’s death, in 1996 she moved to Hay on Wye where, at the age of 68 and with no formal training, she began painting and discovered a whole new life, her vibrant works in oil achieving phenomenal popularity and being sought increasingly by visitors to the annual Hay Festival from the UK and beyond.

2008 saw the publication of a book about Jean's life and paintings, and later that year she began selling limited edition prints of some of her paintings to bring them within reach of a wider audience.

In her latter years she fought bravely against a long illness while continuing to paint as enthusiastically as ever, until sadly she lost her final battle in January this year.

With twenty-two of her paintings now in print, Jean leaves behind a wide and varied collection of her lively and popular artwork as a fitting memorial to her talent and vitality.

We have been advised by Jean's family that we now able to resume sales of her prints. Due to increases in the production costs in the six years since Jean sold her first prints, it has unfortunately been necessary to raise prices to cover these, and we now additionally have to charge VAT on the sale. We regret the necessity for these increases, due to circumstances outside our control, and hope this will not detract from your enjoyment of Jean's prints.
