Who is Kirsten Morehead?

Kirsten Morehead is a visual artist based out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. A jack-of-all-art who dabbles in watercolor and acrylic painting, fiber arts, costume design, and sculptural work - but is most well known for ceramics. She is a triumvirate Mom, Teacher, and Artist at her core.

In 2016, she became a mom. She named her son Arthur after the book, The Once and Future King by T.H. White. Motherhood inspired her to leave the corporate world and transition into teaching visual art for Tulsa Public Schools. Her experience working exclusively at Title 1 schools in the greater Tulsa area allowed her -and her students- to turn pennies into masterpieces. Often working with a minimal budget provided for art supplies, she and her students turned toilet paper rolls, scrap fabric, cardboard, and anything else they could get their hands on into masterpieces!

In 2022, in the aftermath of the global pandemic's effects on public education, her loving husband encouraged her to work as hard for herself and her art as she often did for other people. She decided to take him up on his advice and pursue her passions. The sky was the limit!

As an homage to her son and his namesake, Once & Future Things was born! A nomenclature that encapsulates all the different art forms she explains. What is the creative process other than turning what was once one thing into something new?
