Leila McMillan is a jack-of-all-trades and mistress-of-some. With a background in fine art and a degree in sculpture she is also an accomplished knitter, seamstress and fiddle-smith.
She moved to St Leonard’s-on-Sea in 2005 and made contact with Project Art Works whilst looking for activities for her daughter Eden – a keen artist with learning disabilities.
After first working as an artist on a few projects she is now the resident archivist – although she loves getting the occasional chance to spend time in the studios with the makers.
Her daughter Eden develops her creative practice at Project Art Works studio.
