Amy Millar Watt (d. 1956)

She studied under Fred Shelley at the Plymouth School of Art and later at St Martin’s in London. Here she met John Millar Watt, who attended the same evening classes. They both worked for advertising agencies as staff artists.

They married in 1923 and moved to Dedham in Essex where Millar, who had discovered early success with his cartoon strip POP, designed and built a modern house and studio overlooking Dedham Vale.  Alfred and Violet Munnings were frequent visitors to the Watt’s house.

Amy devoted her energies to a considerable output of landscape and flower paintings, using a sense of color, design and often scale that was self-assuredly modern, yet worked out on traditional lines.  The Watt’s two children, Mary and George, became subjects of great charm in both Amy and Millar’s paintings.

She was a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy - her work was hung in the Summer Exhibition almost continually from 1929-53 and she also had Honorable Mention at the Paris Salon.  The Watt’s moved a number of times; Dedham, Windsor, Crediton (Devon), St Ives and finally to Walton Street in London.
