Kortney K. Niewierski received her BFA in Sculpture from The Ohio State University and is a graduate of Kent State University with a Master of Fine Arts in Sculpture. Kortney makes three-dimensional objects that explore the push and pull of intrigue and peculiarity through the use of bodily imagery, toy-like forms, and tactile fabrics. Each organic form supports a not-quite-this, not-quite-that theme that is intended to cause a moment of introspection within the viewer.
Kortney currently teaches drawing and foundations as an adjunct professor at Kent State University and 3D Design at The University of Akron. She is actively showing her work.
