About

​Erin Miller (she/her) is an artist based in Austin, TX. While using print as a starting point, she traverses between disciplines—painting, drawing, textile-work, and sculptural installation—to investigate themes of perception. Textiles, carpeting, dyeing, and bleaching inspire a material exploration beyond the printing press, conflating in form and subject matter theatrically. Movie sets, casino carpets, stage design, prop building, and the Bouba/Kiki effect serve as anchoring points, where techniques of doubling are incorporated. In 2022 she received an MFA from Cornell University, where she was the recipient of the Kip Brady Memorial Prize in printmaking (2021 and 2022) and the John Hartell Graduate Award in studio excellence. She most recently completed the Kahn Family Fellowship at the Ink Shop, located in Ithaca, NY and is a Lecturer and the Printmaking Area Lab Technician at the University of Texas at Austin.
