"As a multimedia artist who works with clay, metal, and paint, I approach my work by seeking a deeper understanding of the creative process and through endless exploration. I find inspiration from the natural world and from my feelings regarding the beauty that surrounds me. Additionally, my educational background in Studio Practice and Art History aides my decisions as an artist and as a forever student of ceramics. I adore clay and can't wait to begin working in my local community! Come, let's get muddy at Deming!"

Lacey Lewis

She has worked extensively with children through her time as a tutor, a mentor at the Boys & Girls Club in Lafayette, and as an instructor through the summer art program at the Swope Art Museum. She currently teaches art to grades K-5 at Hoosier Prairie and Deming Elementary Schools. She enjoys ceramics and many other artist expressions, as well as travel, nature, and spending free time with close friends and family.
