Mary Castle-Milliner is a visual artist living in London. Her creative practice focuses on research led projects in drawing, painting and sculpture.

She is interested in the persistence of identity politics; from the multi-cultural perspective but in a self-reliant, cross-border viewpoint. Her pictures include references to territory and landscape, looking for how the body in art carries political messages and how contemporary art continues to exploit traditional techniques and art history. She is always looking for new ways to collaborate across boarders and disciplines.
