About the Artist: Weaving Dreams into Reality
Hey there, I'm Callen, an artist with a lifelong passion for turning fibers and clay into captivating works of art. My journey began in the realm of sewing and knitting during my early years, a love that eventually led me to a degree in textiles from North Carolina State University. After college, I found myself in the glitzy world of Los Angeles, doing costumes for film and TV.
In 2021, a pottery class sparked a new passion. The touch of clay and the art of shaping it was a whole new challenge that has ultimately led me to where I am today.
My artistic style celebrates the individual and the unrepeatable. Every piece I create is one-of-a-kind, a blend of textures and colors that come together in a way that can never be replicated. I have a soft spot for crafting larger-than-life creations that make a statement and demand attention.
Inspiration for me is a blend of the process itself and the possibilities of the medium. It's a dance between the fibers, textures, and clay, each piece telling a story of its own. And speaking of stories, I'm excited to share that in the fall of 2024, I'll be showcasing my work at the Pullen Arts Center in Raleigh, NC.
My art is all about celebrating uniqueness. I believe that everyone should have access to something special and one-of-a-kind. Beyond the art, I'm on a personal journey of growth and self-discovery. From making my resolution to consider myself an artist to launching this website, it's been quite a ride.
When I'm not in the studio, you'll find me with my partner, Christian, and our two adorable cats, Bagira and Earl. They bring a whole lot of inspiration and fun into my creative space.
I invite you to explore my world of fibers and clay, where every piece is infused with a bit of magic and a lot of heart. Join me as we celebrate the beauty of the unique and the joy of creating something truly special.
