Originally from Durham, North Carolina, Austin "Auz" Miles is a practicing painter, designer, and public artist located in Richmond, VA. She uses color, texture, and distortion to embody her own stories, contributing to the conversation about Black female experiences. Miles is an alumna of Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts, receiving her Bachelors of Fine Arts in 2017. Her paintings are a glimpse into a realm where emotions are personified and become out-of-body experiences of connection. Through her work, Austin "Auz" Miles hosts visual conversations that ignite understanding and inspire community healing. In October 2021, Austin "Auz" Miles was the first recipient of the Director's Choice Award for her piece Water Dancers Part 1 at the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art, Made In VA exhibition. Miles has also exhibited work at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, The Contemporary Arts Network, Virginia Museum of History and Culture, Jamestown Settlement, The Hermitage Museum and Gardens, The Biggs Museum of American Art, and 1708 Gallery.
