Public Statues and Sculpture Association

LesleyMay Miller

Multi-disciplinary artist, whose work moves between sculpture, poetry, artists’ books, etching, painting, photography and sound. From 1977 to 1981 she studied ceramics and printmaking at Edinburgh College of Art, followed by a postgraduate diploma, after which she continued her research on a cycling trip through Europe, Sri Lanka and India. In 1987, she became a founder member of the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop. She has exhibited widely in the UK, Europe and the USA, but since setting up a sculpture garden in the Borders in 1993 her interest has been in working outdoors. Strongly influenced by the writings of Patrick Geddes, her commissioned works have included a series of collaborations with Kenny Munro at the Scots College Montpellier, France (1992–98), and a sculpture entitled Reassurance for the roof garden of the former Standard Life building at Tanfield, Edinburgh. She now lives in East Lothian.
