K McGiveron: Ceramic Art by Kathleen McGiveron

In her own words...

My name is Kathleen P. McGiveron. Every since I could use my fingars to create an image I have been in love with art. I love how I can express my creativity with it. In grade 10 I took a Ceramic class because I was short a class... that was when I fell in love with the smell and the texture and all the possibilities of clay. I began working with the material in a fevered manner. I am now entering my third year at Emily Carr University, Majoring in Ceramic and Sculpture art. I have not stopped working with clay since grade 10. I mostly do sculpture work with the material. I enjoy making wall masks and am currently experimenting with darker faces, and on Etsy I sell my tree masks. I have taken a wheel throwing class last semester and have now come to enjoy that technique with clay. I own a kiln and hope to purchase a pottery wheel some time this year. I am now starting to sell on Etsy, and have set up a blog. I plan on becoming a professional artist through gallery showings and I also hope to teach at the high school level.
