Kalee is a first year ceramics graduate candidate at Rhode Island School of Design. They were born and raised in North Carolina where they acquired a deep appreciation for the sound of cicadas on summer nights and the word “y’all.” Kalee’s three great loves are art, literature, and nature.

Their artwork explores the dichotomy between internal identity & emotion and external appearance & expression, and humans’ relationships to their own bodies within the natural world. When they’re not in the studio making new ceramic work, you can find them reading way too many books, propagating plants at home, or hiking in a state park.
