Millie Sims is an abstract artist, specializing in geometric paintings in acrylic on canvas. A North Carolina native, Millie spent time studying and working in Paris, France, and New York City, before returning to the south, where she currently resides in Charleston, South Carolina. Millie is inspired by the art of reinvention, framing conventional beauty in new and unexpected ways, through an exploration of mathematics in aesthetic. Throughout her body of work, she reshapes classic imagery in her signature sharp-angled style. From abstract adaptations of Audubon prints and Slim Aarons photographs to Lowcountry landscapes and chinoiserie patterns, her paintings put a fresh, modern spin on recognizable images of comfort.
