Pamela Hignite was born and raised in Hamilton, Ohio, and grew up a tree climbing, mud pie making, portrait-drawing tomboy. She evolved into a sculptor and art educator after a jaunt through motherhood with five rambunctious children. Hignite now exhibits in galleries and juried competitions on a national level and sells work via online venues. She holds a BS, BFA, MFA, and MA from Miami University. Hignite received the Lilly Endowment for Teacher Creativity in 2012 and 2020.
I grew up with a love for nature and an appreciation of the human form. My affinity for the art of primitive cultures and a desire to insert that genre of sublime power make their way into my own work. I feel very strongly that everything is connected and that we are all one. These connections encompass the realm of our ancestors; flow into the present, and on to our future generations. My work is a recurrent attempt to capture these elusive connections within a sculptural form.
