EP 05 Excavating Origin Stories with Michaela Ayers

In this episode, we stroll into a conversation with the artist formerly known as Michaela Ayers. With a BFA in Art History from the University of Kansas and a studio practice of collage, ceramics, and fiber arts, multi-disciplinary artist Mickey D is ready to be seen.

Facilitated by BHS co-producer Jassmine Parks, this interview dives into Mickey’s early childhood curiosities and inspirations. We also chat about her creative routine and the distinction between her collage and ceramics practice.

Our special guest in this episode is someone who knows Michaela’s creative impulses very well; her mom Virginia Ayers. Tune in to this family affair, y’all.

In this episode, we talk about: 

  • The inner child
  • Motherhood
  • Malcolm X
