An accomplished sculptor, Juliette Milne has a rich history of academic artistic training. In 1972 she gained a Diploma of Graphic Arts at Auckland Technical Institute; and later a Certificate of Visual Arts at Manukau Institute of Technology in 2001. She has subsequently completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts at the University of Auckland, majoring in sculpture.
Milne is widely known for her flax seed pods, sculptures that refer to the particular historic, industrial and cultural usage of the plant in New Zealand. They tell of a season passing, of change and expiration.
