CONNER BURNS - Instructor at MISSA 2020

Conner Burns is a studio artist in Natchez, Mississippi.

It was not the theatre or museums he visited during his youth - but the art that filled his childhood home that produced his feeling that ‘art is part of life rather than simply entertainment’.

The natural environment, physiology, art festivals, his father (clay) and his mother (fiber) influenced his future and his art. He desires for his art to reflect nature, not literally, but in how it ‘feels’…

Through graduate school, corporate, teaching studios, art festivals, workshops, etc … Conner has done his best to simplify his life and retreats to his studio to create art in the quiet, tranquil world that he has carefully created.  Then shares his art with you.
