Mya Kerner is a multidisciplinary artist based in Seattle, WA. In 2011, Mya received a BFA in Interdisciplinary Sculpture and Environmental Design from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, MD. From 2012 to 2014, she worked primarily in cast iron sculpture, living nomadically, and periodically working for her family’s landscaping company. After moving to Seattle in 2015, she completed a Certificate in Holistic Landscape Design at Bastyr University and now maintains a full-time studio practice. Through her practice, Mya extends her family’s lineage of Eastern European foresters by investigating memory and place. Her visual art oscillates between two- and three-dimensions as she explores ancestry, storytelling, and ecological concern through depictions of the landscape.
