Studio Art: Painting & Drawing
Sarah Navasse Miller received an MA in art history from the University Pantheon-Sorbonne in Paris, and an MFA in painting from American University in Washington DC in 2011.
Originally from France, she started her career working in a stained glass studio just outside of Paris in both restauration (16th to 19th century windows) and creations for public spaces. Her practice outside of stained glass quickly focused on drawing, and her work on paper has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including: Casa de Velazquez (Madrid Spain), Espace Richelieu (Paris France), Paris Town Hall, Institut de France (Paris France), Matadero (Madrid), Musée Dobrée (Nantes, France), Château des Bouillants (Dammary-les-Lys, France), Katzen Art Center (Washington DC). She currently has gallery representation with the Gallery Vitoux in Paris, and Gallery Vachet-Delmas specialized in contemporary drawing in Sauve, South of France.
She was recipient of several awards (Finalist for the Prix Marin 2016, Drawing Prize from the French Academy of Fine Arts in 2018, and nominated for the Prix Ddessin 2020), and has had several prestigious residencies including the year-long “Casa de Velazquez” in Madrid in 2014–2015, or the Foundation Laurent-Vibertin in Lourmarin (France).
In parallel to her studio practice, Sarah Navasse Miller has also been teaching since 2012. She is relocating to Austin in 2021, where she will be lecturer in the Department of Art and Art History at The University of Texas.
