Producing work that is sensuous, slightly frightening, and grotesquely humorous has become a means to engage discomfort and anger with situations that cannot be changed. Life’s frustrations and the human condition are embedded into her abstract sculptures, drawings, and installations through juxtaposition of delicate and aggressive material manipulation. Ms. Meier has been awarded residencies at; The John Michael Kohler Arts/Industry Program, The Ragdale Foundation, The Vermont Studio Center, Ox-Bow School of Art and Artist's Residency, Anderson Ranch, and Sanskriti-Kendra, in New Delhi. Her work has been exhibited widely in the Chicagoland area including; The Hyde Park Art Center, Roots & Culture Gallery, The International Museum of Surgical Science, to name a few. She earned her MA in Art Education (2000), and MFA in Fiber and Material Studies (2011), from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
