Eleri Mills

Born: 1955, UK, Wales, Powys, Llangadfan

Painter, printmaker and textile artist. Studied embroidery at Manchester Polytechnic, 1974-77, where she later taught as a visiting lecturer. In 1988 she returned to her home village of Llangadfan in Mid-Wales, where she still lives and works. She won the Craft Gold Medal at the 1987 National Eisteddfod and won first prize in 'Art of the Stitch' at the Barbican in 1999. Her commissioned work includes a large eight panelled mural for the National Farmers Union Headquaters in Stratford-upon-Avon, 1983-84, and a residency with the Equilibre Horse Theatre, 2001-02. She combines paint and textiles to produce semi-abstract landscapes with personal and mythical associations
