Why Mai Whey?

I’ve been using that name since about 2008, when I was working with clay. The backstory is actually pretty funny. Many years ago, my now ex-husband was insisting I do something in a particular way, and I disagreed. I remember the argument escalating until I finally blurted out, “You know what? I will do it myway!” 

Shortly afterward it occurred to me that would be an excellent name for my art and my studio. And so it came to be. 

I’m often asked whether the name is Asian or inspired by Asian art. Now you know the answer – “Nope – I owe it to a quarrel with my ex-husband.” 

It really fits, by the way. I create art “my way.” I learn and completely respect the art and process of others, but at the end of the day, my art is myart – created Mai Whey.
