Artist and Designer Marie-Louise Miller has always been obsessed with drawing. After completing her Foundation Diploma at St Martin’s School of Art & Design in 1991 a place on the Fashion Promotion & Illustration course at Epsom School of Art & Design offered Marie-Louise the opportunity to extend her drawing practice and her interest in the human form and psyche. Later in 1996, she attended The Roehampton Institute to study Public Art and shifted her focus to human spaces rather than human bodies.
After fifteen years creating bespoke designs for the world’s premier interiors Marie-Louise returned to full time fine-art studio practice and now works from her studio The Old Chemist, which she shares with her cinematic husband Mauricio Vincenzi and which is fast becoming a must visit creative space in the quirky seaside town of St Leonard’s on Sea. The Old Chemist is home to Endwell Productions and hosts Super8, cinematic, drawing; fashion and performance pop ups, happenings and workshops. When not on the south coast of England, Marie-Louise can be found in Niteroi the city opposite Rio de Janeiro, Brazil boasting a fabulous view of that iconic skyline.
Marie-Louise was raised in South London and deepest rural France. She leads a drawing research group from The Old Chemist and is a Visiting Lecturer on the Fashion FDA at Sussex Coast College, Hastings. In 2015 she launched WEAR ART the digital extension of her fine art practice in ready to wear form.
