My name is Eunika and I paint with clay ... and now other natural materials. I collect and forage for these on my hikes and travels - it is part of my life and creative process. Painting with clay is a technique I created while in graduate school getting my MFA in ceramics and mixed media. I was digging and using red clay and noticed that it was staining my clothes. I just took it from there and added other colored clays to my palette.
I was born and raised in Eastern Europe and has lived in Memphis / Mississippi for most of my life. I've been a graphic designer, graphic design professor and now a full time artist and Telluride resident.
