Abigail J. Miller, of Lexington, KY, is a teaching artist in sculpture, painting, and creative writing. She specializes in exploring topics of Judaism, disability, LGBTQ+ identity, and Latinx heritage. When she enters a new community, she views her teaching artistry as a collaboration and a means of cultural exchange.
Within her artistic practice, Abigail aims to increase awareness about environmental justice and conservation, climate change, and animal welfare. Many of her works involve upcycling materials such as cardboard, paper, and plastic.
After graduating from Lafayette High School's SCAPA Creative Writing program in 2014, she left Lexington to earn her B.A. in Fine Arts at Haverford College in Pennsylvania.
In 2019, she participated in a fellowship with ArtistYear, an AmeriCorps program that deploys teaching artists to low-income public schools across Philadelphia to increase equity in arts education. She is a two-time recipient of the Young Appalachian Poets Award and has had her sculptures and paintings exhibited in galleries across Pennsylvania.
