February Artist of the Month: Juliet Whitsett

Juliet Whitsett (she/her) is an Austin, TX based Artist and Arts & Environmental Educator with a Master’s Degree in Community-Based Arts Education from the University of Texas at Austin. Her artistic practice focuses on endangered and threatened species works and community arts installations such as the co-creation and curation of @reallysmallmuseum_atx, nature-immersed Biodiversity of Texas Art Walks (2021, 2022), and an audio-based Audio Wild series. Her current fine art series, Biodiversity of Texas addresses Threatened, Endangered and Species of Greatest Conservation Need (SGCN) in Texas. For this work she samples colors from actual images of Texas’ rarest and most vulnerable species to create original digitally-based art inspired by their unique palettes, lives and forms. She has recently completed an Artist Residency and solo show at Wild Basin Creative Research Center (2022), as well as a solo show at Westcave Outdoor Discovery Center (2022).
Juliet has designed public programs and family events for institutions such as the High Line, University of Texas’ Planet Texas 2050, Botanical Research Institute of Texas | Fort Worth Botanic Garden, The Bullock Texas State History Museum, the Thinkery and the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. She has served as an arts and education consultant to individuals and organizations both domestically and internationally.
“I actually look forward to the days I pick up my work at Miller IDS. From the moment you walk in the door, you know it is a special place of business. The customer service at Miller is really special (Larry brightens any day!), it’s obvious that strong relationships, kindness, integrity and quality are paramount here. As a fine artist, it is more than a pleasure to work with Dana as she is so talented and absolutely dedicated to the most professional and stunning results. It feels good to know my art and work is in the most capable hands.”
