A born and raised Durhamite, Anna Wallace has been getting her hands dirty in clay and other materials since her time at the Durham School of the Arts. She went on to earn her BFA in Ceramics at the Cleveland Institute of Art. The incredibly strong undergraduate program taught Anna the importance of quality and craftsmanship. In order to further inform her practice she supplemented her education with classes at the Penland School of Crafts and spent time in Paris and other European cities studying historical and contemporary art. Anna is currently an MFA candidate at UNC Greensboro. The interdisciplinary program is challenging her to think critically about material choices and to  strengthen the aesthetic and conceptual issues in her work.
