Colin Miller has been sculpting since 1966, ten years of which he spent living and working in Greece. He lives and works in Blakeney, North Norfolk, England.
He works in bronze, marble, English stone and varying woods, particularly olive wood. Colin Millers work is both figurative and abstract and is characterised by its sensual and tactile qualities, combined with his use of natural elements and forms. Nature, Greek mythology and the phenomenon of Creation are his principal sources of inspiration. He likes to keep his ideas and themes varied with no limitations. The human figure plays an important part in his work, which moves freely from abstraction to representation.
Talking about his work he says: "My aim throughout my work is to evoke a feeling of exploration and participation while visually and emotionally stimulating my audience. Above all, I want to share the pleasure which I experience when creating my sculpture."
In the course of his career as a sculptor, Colin Miller has undertaken many public commissions, and has exhibited internationally. His sculptures, including portrait heads, are also to be found in private collections world-wide.
