Anette Millington is a research-based artist and educator. She investigates creative making practices and systems that embed materials with meaning. Her particular focus as an artist and designer is textile embellishment, considering relationships between biology, mathematics, semiotics and ornamentation. Signaling through pattern and symbol, as found in nature and in cultural practice, is a central element of her inquiry. As an art and design educator, Anette specializes in reflective pedagogy, materials-based thinking, and transdisciplinary methods.
Anette is Assistant Professor of Fashion Systems and Materiality at Parsons School of Design. She is also the Director of Parsons First Year Program. She has worked in museum education at the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Arts and Design, and the Brooklyn Museum.

She has been reviewed online by the blog Hyperallergic, and in print by the Boston Globe.
