Tuesday West was born in Sindelfingen, Germany to her two military parents. An only child, Ms. West grew up in St. Louis, Missouri near her cousins of a similar age. She lived in the same house since she was five only moving to Kansas City, MO to attend the Kansas City Art Institute to receive a BFA in ceramics in 2013. She was fortunate to receive a merit award scholarship to the Kansas City Art Institute. Ms. West has exhibited in numerous group shows at the Kansas City Art Institute, most recently in the 2013 exhibition, "Hot Box." At this point and time her tile work reflects a proud female African American eagerly inviting her audience to learn to love their natural beauty, history, and talent. Read Less

Tuesday wanted to give dance a higher importance in her life by allowing it to feed into her studio practice. As with the carvings in her later works, she still pushes the idea of pride in natural beauty, and love in the numerous displays of natural African American hair styles. Also bringing forth that moment of joyous freedom that she experienced with dance. Tuesday now sculpts and builds with the purpose of constructing working ceramic Zoetropes and Praxinoscopes that animates her style of dance. This has been a continuing exploration with the idea of bringing movement and life to ceramics, a permanent, and static material. Read Less
I carry myself in an all-natural way, no makeup, my natural hair, in short shorts showing off my beautiful brown legs and thighs. My presence is strong because I am genuinely happy, with my life and myself. I’m at a school where being a woman is no longer the minority but being an African American is, but does it … Read More
I carry myself in an all-natural way, no makeup, my natural hair, in short shorts showing off my beautiful brown legs and thighs. My presence is strong because I am genuinely happy, with my life and myself. I’m at a school where being a woman is no longer the minority but being an African American is, but does it affect me? Of course, but not in a bad way by any means, sure I’ll show you what black is. Black is beautiful. I’m an only child, I have to stand on my own, I know what I’m entitled to. Read Less
