Biography and 2017

They say that with Meditation you are always a beginner, I hope to keep starting and keep up the race.

August  2017 Preparing for art Exhibition at Armidale Art Gallery NEAS (New England Art Society) next month rush rush rush leaving things to the last minute.

Exhibition is with my son David Allan who is an exceptional artist and illustrator it will be interesting. The Exhibition is called "Illustrations and Inspiration"

Seem to be getting some new things done but will most probably have to show some older paintings as well.

March 2017 -- Have just started and almost finished new pics for  a Rotary Art Show exhibition. It has been a long journey with Cancer in 2012 treated with Radiotherapy and and then another Cancer -- Lymphoma in 2015  this time chemotherapy. 2016 has just been a year of getting over the treatment.
Intending to do more paintings last year but time just passing with life too quickly. Will be doing more this year. Forgot to take a photo of two pics I put in the Rotary Art show but here are the best I think anyway.


Lee Milroy is an artist who is now concentrating on her childhood passion for painting and art.

She enjoyed using watercolours in her painting in her early days as an artist after leaving school. However the demands of a more ‘practical’ lifestyle and the need to earn a living obliged her to put her creative efforts on hold.

After many years of working in nursing, Lee did a Grad Dip Ed, teaching Secondary English and History, following with a Master’s degree in which she studied early Greek and Etruscan Art and early Christian iconography as part of her Thesis, meanwhile establishing her own business, teaching computer skills, graphic art and multi-media.

Lee has managed to combine her love of images with her skills in technology by creating graphics as part of her computer based business which also assists in using and manipulating images as a basis for her art works.

She is now concentrating on traditional art and painting. She enjoys painting wildlife and other natural subjects such as horses, dogs and especially birds and landscapes.

She has had exhibitions at the Armidale Art Gallery (New England Art Society) in 2007 and 2011. Lee has also exhibited in Uralla in 2013 with proceeds going to CanAssist after a time off for Cancer treatment and has had various works in the Uralla Rotary Art Show over the years since returning to painting.

She is available for commissions
