In 1988 Milé began painting in watercolours, focusing on predominantly figurative pieces; these have remained life-long loves, but his body of work has expanded into lush oils and monochromatic inks with increasingly varied subject matter.

In 2010 Milé left Toronto, relocating to a 150-year old farmhouse in Prince Edward County, Ontario, where he opened Small Pond Arts with his wife, playwright and puppeteer Krista Dalby. An artist residency and arts centre, Small Pond Arts also provided Milé with his own studio/gallery space, which is open to the public six months of the year.

Since moving to PEC, this new landscape and its people have greatly influenced his subject matter over the past four years: local farmers are featured in his Field to Canvas portrait series; there are the pastoral Barnscapes; and his 33 on 33 project which had him painting 33 scenes in 33 consecutive days en plein air from one end of PEC to the other along Highway 33, followed a few months later with County 101, a 101-hour ink painting marathon (no sleeping allowed) during which he painted 101 scenes of the people and places of Prince Edward County.

In 2014 Milé spent nine months working on To the Sound of Trumpets, a 100-painting project comemorating the start of World War One.

He has shown his paintings in numerous solo and group exhibitions and his work is in public and private collections around the world. Milé was born in Canada in 1971 and grew up in the lovely cliffside town of Scarborough, Ontario. He is still alive and his current whereabouts are known.
