WSS Intern - Teala Irons

Hello there, I am Teala Irons, a recent graduate from Eastern Illinois University.  I received a bachelor of the arts degree in art history and ceramics.  I have been working with clay for the past 8 years.  The last 4 years I have studied art history of all different times and places of the world. Being surrounded by art and its creators is everything an art student could ask for.  I strive to build artistic relationships that inspire, motivate, and contemplate original ideas for the future of the art world. An art gallery is where I belong.  A curator is what I hope to be.  A passionate lover of the arts is who I am.
