Meet the Juror…

Heidi Dauphin

Heidi Dauphin is a mixed media/ceramic artist, born in 1970 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She earned an MFA in 2001 and BFA in 1992 from the University of Michigan. Heidi’s career began as a high school art teacher in Michigan and followed by working as a gallerist in Massachusetts. Moving to Phoenix in 2004, Heidi focused on art making and has completed several large-scale Public Art Projects, including the Valley Metro Light Rail, City of Phoenix, and the City of Avondale. She is also the Exhibitions Manager at Shemer Art Center.
Between public art projects, Heidi concentrates on her studio practice. She is a collector of memories, objects, and places: all affecting her work. Throughout her career, she has completed three yearlong art projects (2000, 2010, 2020) that involved making art and collecting every day for a year. Heidi feels this ritual is essential to her art making process.
