Rosie Miller

Director of Art and Design


Rosie Miller has worked as an artist and academic since 2000; she has previously worked in radio & television production and taught Drama & English in secondary education.



As lecturer and Area Leader of Critical & Contextual Studies Rosie Miller sees her teaching role and the role of the Area as an important time for students to reflect on their studio practice and to place their work in the context of others.

Research Interests

Rosie Miller has worked collaboratively with fellow artist and academic Jonathan Carson since 2000. Carson & Miller’s practice is driven by their need to tell and re-tell stories; recent work has increasingly used the game as a form for collaboration.
