Phoebe Ackley

Recreation Specialist III, PT

I was born into a family of artists and took the easy path. I love teaching sculpture in clay and I love painting on any surface including clay! My personal work focuses on environmental and social justice issues mainly through narrative ceramic busts. In my real life I sing, play with space and work constantly on my Rube Goldberg-like systems for catching rainwater, growing more food and keeping my chickens happy. Happy chickens, happy eggs! Peace and Love Phoebe Ackley
