This website is dedicated to the work of Hilton Miller

Hilton Miller began painting in the early 1970s after walking away from a growing academic career as a statistician at Cambridge and Birkbeck College at the University of London. He had been highly regarded for coming up with significant unsolved mathematical “pearls” and solutions. He left to become a consultant statistician and began drawing and painting. As his interest grew, he began to work part-time to enable him to devote himself to painting. His approach to art mirrored the purity of his understanding of mathematics, not seeking a ‘career’ which he felt would disturb and interfere with the crucible of true discovery in the studio, but to work with reserved and persistent dedication towards silent painted solutions. After 40 years painting, his first public exhibition was held in 2011, a year before he died. (more)
