Marissa Childers

Marissa Childers was born and raised in the small town of Florence, Ala. She attended the University of North Alabama, where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Art in 2019. Upon graduating she worked as a ceramics intern at Anderson Ranch Arts Center and is now pursuing her Master of Fine Art at the University of Oklahoma. Her work explores how we share intimate moments with each other through functional handmade objects. Her work is often colorful and covered in a variety of textures. Whether it is influenced by the pattern on her grandparents' curtains or the woven threads of a blanket, each piece is a little reminder of home.
