Arrow Creative Welcomes New Ceramic Studio Artist in Residence

Meet Becky Blackburn, Arrow Creative’s new ceramics studio artist in Residence. Becky Blackburn is a ceramic artist from Oklahoma, currently living and working in Memphis, Tennessee. She received her BFA in ceramics at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock in 2018 before moving on to the University of Memphis to receive her MFA in ceramics in May of this year. This fall she will be teaching ceramics at both the University of Memphis and Christian Brothers University. We sat down with Becky to dig deeper into her start, inspiration and goals.

Can you tell us a little bit about the moment you realized you were an artist? It is rather anticlimactic, but my pursuit of art has made me feel like an artist. I know this is a feeling that some people struggle with but working in the medium and making ideas a reality gives me that feeling.
