Rachel Milne is an alla prima oil painter who responds directly to her environment. What drives her practice is her need to visually document her personal experiences; she transforms ordinary scenes into extraordinary paintings by focusing on light and seeing a beauty often overlooked in the everyday. A keen observer, Milne paints anything and everything that catches her eye from an unfinished meal to the corner of a friend’s sitting room.

It is Milne’s intention to develop a body of work that illustrates her time in Hill End by producing a painting a day. As the residency unfolds and progresses, so too will Milne’s work through her daily exploration and recording of her surroundings.
