“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.

Our Mission

My mission as an Artist is to bring playfulness, smiles and laughter to the lives of many through my artwork. As an instructor, I aim to inspire imagination and provide a mental and physical space beneficial to the creative process. All students are teachers and I intend to always hold this truth.
I teach and create Art in my studio in the Northrup King Building in the Northeast Arts District of Minneapolis.
