Building is an irresistible activity. The act of building up and up, of creating a giant structure. Children construct towers, piling up bricks with great concentration and precision, to arrive at that moment of glee and delight, that point when the tower is high enough to bash down to the ground, then collapsing in on itself to lie strewn across the floor.

Milling is fascinated by that point where construction turns to destruction. Creating large sculptures of glass, she seeks to capture the drama of that moment of inevitable, joyful smash and destruction

Milling was born in London and grew up in South Wales. She completed her BA and MA Fine Art degrees at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, University of Dundee and now lives and works in Edinburgh. Milling has been included in exhibitions at Peacock Visual Arts, Aberdeen; Streetlevel Photoworks, Glasgow; Stills, Edinburgh; Generator, Dundee; and Edinburgh Art Festival amongst others. She is also part of the Ethel Maude Artists Collective. She and Zoë Irvine run Eggbox, a film post-production partnership for artists, film makers and musicians.
