2022/23 Ceramics Artist in Residence
Twiggy is a queer interdisciplinary ceramics artist. They earned their BFA in ceramics from Northwest Missouri State University and recently graduated with their MFA in ceramics from Pennsylvania State University. Twiggy cultivates their own experience of being a queer person rooted in the heart of the Midwest. Their work is meant to question the construct of gender and performance through sculpture and wearable art. Twiggy’s focus is to call attention to the uncomfortable dynamic of being raised in a conservative system, feeling lost and unseen, and allowing younger queer people to project their trials of growing up and defying the construct that raised them.
