Two years ago, at her degree show Catriona Millar’s collection of 400 works was sold in under two hours. Since then Millar's stock has risen at a meteoric rate.
Millar's work is predominantly in oils. She exhibits a bold style which captures the energy of her subjects using a textured approach.
Denis Leiper, of the Riverside Gallery, describes Millar's style as nostalgic.
"In many respects, her work reminds me of my childhood," he says.
A similarity runs through her pictures because many of the images are partly of herself. There are real, slight, almost childlike features in her art.
Millar's paintings are very colourful. Leiper continues: "They speak of a time when girls used to wear floral dresses and ribbons in their hair. We've been in this business for 25 years now, and she has one of the most distinctive styles of work I have ever seen."
