About the instructor:

Kalliope Strapp is an emerging artist living and working in Johnson City, TN. She graduated from East Tennessee State University with a bachelor’s degree in Fine Art in 2018 where she focused on ceramics and sculpture. Kalliope makes multi-headed animal sculptures and narrative functional vessels to express complicated human emotions. In her most recent work she has started to incorporate plants, both decoratively and literally, as a symbol of growth and change. With her work she hopes to create spaces and pieces in which people can discuss convoluted emotions and empathize with each other. Her inspirations are, but not limited to, Lisa Clague, Beth Cavaner, Heesoo Lee, Junji Ito, and author Holly Whitaker.
