Randi Sparks (She/Her) is an Artist/Educator currently living and teaching in Northwest Arkansas. She received a BFA in Studio Art with a concentration in Ceramics from the University of Arkansas in 2013 and an MA in Art Education from Boston University in 2015. As an artist, she is interested in the ways in which pattern and repetition relate to psychology and the modern human experience. Clay and fiber are her preferred media because the smallest threads and particles come together to create cloth and vessels in the same way that people come together to create society.
