Millie Egan isn’t really a specialist in anything but she gets by just fine. She’s fairly good at a bunch of stuff. She draws, paints, designs, mends, and makes sculptures out of discarded metal and stone found in dirty barns and roadside verges.
Growing up in Dublin her favourite hobbies were ‘going making’ and looking after crows who’d flown into the windows of the house. Childhood summers were spent on her grandparents’ farm in Kerry, following Granny across the fields with the big cow-herding stick, and examining flowers and mosses in the bog.
She is an adult now and not much has changed. When she’s not working on theatre, film and festival projects, she is usually drawing pictures of snakes, befriending animals and/or wandering through mountains and coasts.
