About Daryl Millard

Daryl Millard was born in Melbourne, Australia in 1964, he has been a professional artist for over thirty five years. His passion for painting was apparent at an early age. He apprenticed as a Byzantine iconographer and later opened his first art gallery in Melbourne. The gallery exceeded his expectations with commissions of many large-scale murals, trompe l’oeil (trick the eye) being popular at the time. 

In 1989 Daryl moved to Los Angeles where he continued to paint murals for the rich and famous. He decided to paint smaller scale artwork and became know as San Diego’s premiere plein air (open air) artist. Daryl opened his own art gallery in 2001 in Solana Beach, California called the Daryl Millard Gallery.

Daryl is recognized as one of Southern California's premiere artists, he is known for his unique ability to capture the light of the landscapes he paints. Subtle color is a Millard trademark. "I love working with color harmonies, if you place all the elements correctly, you can capture a mood. Each piece has to live on its own. I let my work speak for me." Daryl participated in many shows and charity events while in California. 

Daryl had quarterly sell out shows of his original works. Some of his collectors include: Alex Spanos (owner of the Chargers), Kevin Kinsella (billionaire and owner of the musical "Jersey Boys," The Evans Family (hotel owners, including the Lodge at Torrey Pines), The Scripts family (owners of the Scripps Ranch and Scripps Hospital), Sandy Saxton (part owner of TS restaurants).

Daryl is a listed artist with auction records from Bonhams and Butterfields auction house in Los Angeles. Daryl's works have been featured in Architectural Art, numerous art magazines and books.

Daryl moved to Lahaina, Maui in 2009 where he currently lives with his family. He paints the natural Hawaiian world around him with a palette that evokes memories of "Old Hawaii" with every brush stroke. Through his artistry, the spirit and beauty of classic Hawaii live in each of his landscapes. Daryl's incomparable paintings portray the indefinable romance of the Islands.

Daryl has a unique quality that few posses, he places all the elements correctly, the tonal quality is superb, the composition balanced and then there is an extra something that you can only experience when you view his work. Like all great artists, he has a gift that transports the viewer to another realm; a golden touch. 

Each of Daryl's explorations into rural Hawaii produces art that possesses an uncanny reflection of the beauty and color of old Hawaii. To own one of Daryl Millard's works is to hold a moment frozen in time, offering a visual memory of the freedom and carefree feeling that only a paradise like Hawaii can provide. As you view Daryl's tropical landscapes you know deep inside, "This is what I experienced the first time I arrived in the Islands."

Through his abstract paintings one feels a sense of freedom, healing, vibrance and tranquility. With the perfect balance of color and movement the viewer is transported into their own experience of Hawaii. Daryl loves his abstracts and enjoys the creative expression through them, by them and with them.

Peace and aloha always,

Vanessa Millard
