Ian Milner turned to sculpture on retirement from his second career as a Surveyor, having started life at sea.
He studied the practice of figurative sculpture both modeled in clay and carved in stone, under Nigel Konstam in Tuscany.
Although without any other formal art training he has relied on a natural talent to become particularly committed to portrait sculpture

Ian Milner is a keen believer that Portrait Sculpture should be much more than a death mask, but should reveal character as in paintings
