Courtney lives and works in Dallas, TX. She received her BFA from Texas Christian University and her MA and MFA from The University of Dallas. She was an Artist-in-Resident at The Fairmont Hotel in Dallas and a three-time Hunting Art Prize Finalist.

Courtney Miles’ artwork observes all of us through the lens of our society’s obsessive hyperawareness. This obsession fascinates her so much that for over a decade, Courtney — through her hedonistic, materialistic alter-ego Neon Courtney – has been incorporating the notions of social identity and the cult of fame into her art.

Courtney’s glamorously mundane self-portraits (the series pre-dates the “selfie”) require the audience to face the meaning of vanity and ask: Which parts of us are really real? Beyond the canvas, Courtney further blurs the line with photography, video, performance and neon lights.
