Katie Miller

Awarded 2023

Katie Miller was born and raised in the wilderness of Northeastern Minnesota’s Iron Range on a lake and without running water. Miller’s childhood experiences with iron miners, geologists, high-energy physicists, scientists, and rural communities have served as a foundation for her curiosity of the world and her creative practice. Now deeply rooted in the Pacific Northwest, Miller’s interdisciplinary practice is situated at the intersection of art, architecture, and science. Miller received a BFA in sculpture from the University of Washington and an MFA in glass from the Tyler School of Art, Temple University. Miller’s creative practice has been supported by PLAYA: Center for Art &Science, Puffin Foundation, Seattle Art Museum, 4Culture, Seattle Office of Arts & Culture, Joshua Tree Highlands, MadArt Studio, Montello Foundation, Bullseye Glass Factory, Method Gallery, Artist Trust, Art Farm, and Pilchuck Glass School among others. Her work has been exhibited nationally in museums, galleries, and artist-run spaces and can be found in the public realm as well as public and private collections. Miller has been selected for numerous competitive artist residency programs, fellowships, and grants throughout the U.S. Writing about her work can be found in Crosscut, Seattle Channel, Garland Magazine, Luxe Interiors + Design, Big Freak Media, Seattle Weekly, Seattle Star, Rise and Shine, and more.
