Stacy Isenbarger’s artworks provoke a sense of tactile memory. Her collisions of textures and materiality, within precariously occupied spaces, invite viewers to confront the sentimentality of distance and the tangles of restraint.

Isenbarger’s creative pursuits include sculpture, installation, mixed-media drawings, and supporting community exchange through art.

As a Professor of Art + Design at the University of Idaho in Moscow, Idaho, USA, she celebrates her opportunities to explore creative communication and empowerment. She received her BFA at Clemson University & her MFA from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia. When she's not teaching or making—and sometimes when she is—she's usually dancing since the act continuously validates her joy of community acceptance and shaking up space.

Isenbarger is the co-creator and a contributing editor for the studio art faculty online resource WhatDoWeDoNow.Art. She is also a member of the Confluence Lab.
