Anela Oh 

Anela Ming-Yue Oh is a multidisciplinary artist in love with curry and the ocean. She holds a BFA in Studio Art from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University and has recently started a term serving on the board of Hand Papermaking inc. Her art practice is deeply grounded in a sense of community and sharing her skills with others through playful experimentation and collaboration. She uses materials that have a life of their own such as clay, paper, and fiber to feed her studio practice and create environments full of color and texture. As a mixed race artist of Malaysian Chinese descent, she utilizes imagery, colors, textures, and smells from her cultural heritage to pay homage to the work of her ancestors as she builds new worlds and futures. Her work aims to inspire a sense of hope and proposes visions of a future that includes marginalized voices by choosing to take a joyful and playful approach while discussing immigrant histories. She has been an Artist in Residence at Sonoma Ceramics, and a Teaching Artist-in-Residence at the Oxbow School. Currently she is the West Bay View Fellow at Dieu Donné.
