Rose B. Simpson comes from a family of northern New Mexico Native American artists. Her mother, Roxanne Swentzell, a well-known ceramic sculptor within the Indigenous art world, and her father, Patrick Simpson, a contemporary artist in wood and metal, introduced her to the art world at a young age. She received her BFA at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe in 2007 and a master’s of fine arts in ceramics from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, RI, in 2011.
With work in sculpture, printmaking, drawing, creative writing, music, and dance, her work explores the struggle between Native traditions, colonization, and contemporary global practices. In her CreativeMornings talk, she will discuss the role of risk in her approach to these topics.
