Neisha Whitaker's pottery is a reflection of her childhood. Her mother was an illustrator, and her father was constantly rebuilding cars and homes. Their creative spirit and hands-on approach captivated Whitaker and as she spins her own works, she recalls sitting next to her parents, watching them, as they slowly instilled in her a love for art.
Now as Whitaker creates her own art—she has a special talent for pottery—she continues to call on her childhood for inspiration. As the owner of Little Bird Studios, Whitaker creates teacups, mugs, bowls and more. The hues of her pieces echo early memories of hiking in Arkansas and regional parks, a favorite family pastime that she continues to enjoy as an adult with her own family.
