Carrie Miller is a textile artist and sculptor living in Colorado. Her working process and material curiosity are the products of an untamed childhood. Growing up on a farm, Carrie was constantly exposed to new life, death and whatever could be accomplished in between.  Her time was split between adventures in horseback riding, backwoods archaeology, and whole days hunkered down behind her sewing machine.  The rhythm of this lifestyle is the source of Carrie’s enthusiasm for the challenge to find and make tools, learn new techniques and manifest a plan.

 

Carrie was trained as a seamstress and she pursued design and art simultaneously throughout her undergraduate degree. She received her MFA from Colorado State university. She has been an art instructor, in a variety of capacities, to students of all ages. Carrie feels blessed to spend her time teaching and promoting the arts.

 

As the 2017 recipient of the Handweavers Guild of America's HGA scholarship, Carrie's work was featured on the cover of the winter issue of Shuttle, Spindle Dyepot magazine. Her work has been exhibited throughout the US and was recently exhibited in Scythia the 12th Biennial International Textile Exhibition in Ukraine. Carrie is a current board member of the non-profit organization, Weave a Real Peace. She was a co-founder and the former Visiting Artist Committee Chair of the Fibers Guild of CSU.
