About the Artist
Artist and Art Teacher, living and working in EAST Austin. I focus mainly on Ceramics and Jewelry, but love learning new processes and experimenting with different techniques.
I LOVE making things. The more process oriented and nit-picky the better. My designs are often repetitive in nature and serve as a form of meditation for me while I work. It keeps me calm and helps me regain focus. Something that I have needed more than ever in the chaos of the past few years. I'm continually pushing myself to try new techniques and learn new mediums. Each lesson is eye opening and inspiring, and challenges me to create new and exciting things.I grew up in MI and graduated from Michigan State University with a BFA in Art Education and a Studio Printmaking, but have lived in Austin since 2006! I am an active member of Austin's vibrant art community and I love learning new forms of creation as well as teaching these techniques to others. Thank you for supporting local art, small studios spaces, and I hope that you'll stop by! -Abby Rose Mandel
