Abby Kettner, Life Studies

“Hi everyone! My name is Abby (she/her) and I am going into my fourth year in Life Studies with a minor in Sculpture/Installation. This is my first year as a Peer Mentor and I am so excited to be part of the team.

I am currently living in Tkaronto/Toronto and I am thrilled at the idea of being in-person on campus with all of you later this year! COVID has brought many challenges for artists, and while it was difficult, using my bedroom as a studio this past year really taught me how to get resourceful with my space and materials. Most of my art involves using every-day objects to create sculptures that tell stories about my relationships with the people in my life. I am looking forward to expanding the work I did this past year into a larger project for my upcoming thesis!
