The Artist: Henry Miller

Henry Miller trained at St Martins School of Art and Design, and Bolt School of Lithography in Fleet Street.  Most of his career was spent working as a  commercial artist and after 35 years of running his own studio he retired to Sussex in 1986 where he continued to produce delicate watercolours of the county. He has exhibited widely, including at the Royal Institute of Painters and in Water Colour at the Mall Galleries in London.  His watercolours are very popular and modern giclée prints of his work sell very well.
