JAN MILLER

Jan Miller’s Out To Lunch

“A Batik representing some of my family: Kirsteen, Jim, Netta & Jo having a family celebration.  I was curious to see how my family would look in 3D.

Jan Miller’s Off the Wall

Several years later Jo McSween borrowed Kirsteen & Jo for a Christmas ‘Haggis’ window – to get it to fit I carved a bit off Jo’s left arm. At the time he was hunting in Benin in Africa – he crashed his landrover and broke his left arm !

My parents-in-law Netta and Jim are sadly no longer with us but always in our thoughts, stories and laughs.

Jan Miller’s Christmas Card

Inspired by a poem in Scots by Elspeth Buchanan, I made the Batik and then the sculpture and I am eternally grateful to all the students, pals and family who collected ‘Birth Notices’ from the newspapers for their construction.
