Denise Heywood-Mills

Denise has painted all her life, but initially trained in textile design. After completing her degree, she worked for many years as a freelance illustrator for major publishing companies worldwide in the field of books, fine art prints, greeting cards and associated products. Now concentrating on painting using watercolour and gouache on hot pressed paper or vellum, Denise is inspired by the beautiful countryside where she lives in Shropshire.

As a member of the Royal Society of Miniature Painters, Sculptors and Gravers, Denise exhibits annually at the Mall Galleries, London. She is also a member of the Society of Botanical Artists with whom she exhibits annually at Westminster, London, and every two years in Palmengarten, Frankfurt, Germany. Denise has exhibited miniature paintings for many years at Llewellyn Alexander Fine Paintings, London, and won the Llewellyn Alexander Masters Award for the most outstanding set of paintings of fruit in an exhibition of 800 paintings.
