About Millie

I like the process of making things.

The process is an opportunity. It teaches you things you can’t learn when you’re stagnant and gets you closer to where you need to be. Step by step, you learn how to make things better.

This is the ethos I bring to everything I do. I devise retail business strategies by day and work on a Long-Suffering Manuscript and draw a weird webcomic at night. I’m driven by the investigation and finding value between the lines.

Sometimes things don’t work. Sometimes you carve a red zigzag across your work-in-progress and start over. But as long as you’re moving forward, you’re making progress.

So here’s to reaching the destination.

Thanks for joining me on the journey.

    I find this particular image haunting in such an intriguing way. I want to know more, see more. I love the use of black and white, as well as positive and negative space. The girl in the background is almost like a comic relief; giving the piece a humorous appeal. I look forward to seeing more work by you.

    Thank you for visiting Paper, Mud and Me. Glad you liked that last chapter from “The Nurse.” You will understand her a lot better if you read the book from Chapter 1.
    Don’t give up on either of your dreams or art and writing. I wish you all the best.

    Hi Millie, I hope you’re well. I’d like to congratulate you on your skill with verse. I usually find poetry a bit opaque or too personalised to really connect with, but there’s something about you that really works for me. Bravo!

    I tried to contact you 20 years ago
    but you wasn’t here.
    The day after tomorrow I found you
    but I was gone away.
    For now one thing to say:
    nice to know you anywhere out there.
