“In order to serve others’ growth on this magical journey of life, we must trudge through fear and failure and make friends with our monsters.” – Anjee Mai Emerson
Anjee Mai Emerson views her art as a celebration of making friends with our monsters. She has been a sculptor, working with both earth clay and polymer clay, since age 8. To her, monsters are a metaphor for humanity, and so she incorporates many colorful and whimsical creatures in her art.
And as much as Anjee loves monsters, she also enjoys teaching sculpting techniques to enthusiasts of all ages. In her many years of working as a full-time artist, Anjee has taught thousands of students. Through her art and teaching, Anjee aims to inspire playfulness, laughter and dreaming big.
