During a long life Betty Mills has seen fashions in Art and Craft - as well as the Rag Trade- come and go, but the enduring beauty of Creation remains as absorbing to her as ever. Taught to draw, paint, read and write by her grandfather, Betty trained at Birmingham College of Art and obtained a National Diploma in Design after the Second World War. She worked as a College lecturer running the dress department at Loughborough, and returned to the rag trade in the 1960's in time to take part in the Hippie Revolution, before taking early retirement "to do her own thing" as a writer, designer, artist, and needlewoman.
For the last thirty or so years she has concentrated on presenting wildflowers and other natural forms in various ways, hoping to encourage conservation; if only because there is so much beauty to be preserved. Over almost 20 years Betty Mills’ work has been exhibited at Pensychnant and during this time, Betty and her husband Maurice Mills have done a great deal to support the Conservation Centre. Thanks Betty!
