Mary Stuart-Miller: the colour blind Sussex artist
She’s colour blind but artist Mary Stuart-Miller creates vibrant paintings in her favourite hues of yellow, orange and purple from her homes in Europe and Brighton.
Mary Stuart-Miller isn’t like other artists. ‘I have a cataract, astigmatism, am colour blind and very short sighted, does it show?’ she laughs, surrounded by her vibrant paintings at her house in Kemptown, Brighton.
For someone who, at the age of 53, bundled a few belongings into her VW Beetle and drove to Rome with her 12-year-old daughter to start a new life and run a project feeding homeless people on the streets, she’s clearly not the type of person that would let optical issues hold her back.
