Who is Mrs Banksy Joy Millward?

JOY Millward has been dubbed 'Mrs Banksy' because fans believe her husband is the famous artist.

But who is she and do the couple have children? Here's all you need to know…

Who is Joy Millward? 

Joy Millward is a lobbyist in the United Kingdom. 

In 2005 she set up Principle Affairs, a lobby group that supports charities.

She is the wife of a professional artist named Robin Gunningham – a man who many Banksy fans believe to be the secretive artist.

In 2008 The Mail on Sunday published an investigation in which they named Gunninham as Banksy.

Far from the rebellious tearaway, what we know about Gunningham paints more a picture of middle class suburbia.

Robin, born in 1973 Bristol, also known to be Banksy's long-supposed stomping ground, he went to public school Bristol Cathedral School.

Robin's father, Peter Gordon Gunningham, was a retired contracts manager from the Whitehall area of Bristol.

His mother, Pamela Ann Dawkin-Jones, 67, was a company director's secretary and grew up in the exclusive surroundings of Clifton and he has an older sister called Sarah.

When Robin was nine, the family moved to a larger home in the same street and it is there he spent his formative years and became interested in graffiti.

Do Joy Millward and Banksy have children? 

Not much is known about Joy Millwards and her husband.

The couple are extremely secretive.

One friend of the couple told The Mail: “Joy and Robin live in an isolated community and have little to do with even their closest neighbours.

“Even those they occasionally speak to have no idea who they really are. 

“The only people who know his real identity are those in the inner circle, who have been vetted.

“Some of Joy’s relatives have not been told who her husband is or what he does. Joy does tell people her husband is an artist of some type. 

“She says he does the artwork for cook books and album covers. 

“Banksy has told people he designs the sets for award ceremonies, which explains his frequent absences.”

How long have Joy Millward and Banksy been married?

It is not known when the couple wed.

However, it is thought the couple met in London in 2003 soon before she began working as a researcher for Labour MP Austin Mitchell.
