Tell us one thing nobody knows about you. I have horrible directional sense. It is not uncommon for me to get lost in neighborhoods, and I keep maps in my car of places that I go to on a semi-regular bases, just in case. Thankfully, I am really good at reading maps.
What is your first memory of making art? I have always been a collector of things. I would go around the house, find different objects and figure out a way to bring them together. One of these combinations that stand out in my mind is using my mom’s eye shadows with scotch tape. I would rub the back of scotch tape with the different colors that I could find, then piece these new small sheets of transparent color together. It would be a sculpture, or something wearable, or just layers of color.
Which mug do you drink from the most at home? I bought a mug by Kyla Toomey at the last NCECA and it seems to be the one I currently pick up the most.
Objective Clay was founded by fourteen artists with a shared vision to create an artist established and maintained online space. This space functions as a gallery to view our latest work as well as a window into our current thoughts in process. By sharing our ideas and opening our studios, we invite artists, non-artists, educators, and students to actively engage in our artistic practices. In this virtual studio, the people who love pots can view/purchase new work and form direct relationships with the artists who make them.
