Stacey Johnson is a native of Yazoo City, MS. She grew up playing in cotton trailers, making mud forts, and riding horses. After circumventing the globe, she landed once again in the deep South and now lives and teaches on the Gulf Coast.
Her work is a nod towards storytelling, spontaneity, and mark making in clay, and her greatest influence is the work of outsider artists, most notably those of rural America.
Stacey holds an MFA in ceramic sculpture from The University of Georgia and a BFA from Loyola University. She is a two time recipient of a Mississippi Arts Commission artist fellowship and was recently awarded the 2020 Visual Arts designation by the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters.
