Cameron Brei Harris is drawn to the simplicity and tractability of clay. This flexible material allows her to construct and manipulate forms to covey the subtle intricacies and dynamic complexities of the human body. She sculpts the human form to encourage the viewers to celebrate their own unique physical beauty and reflect upon the commonality of human experiences.
Brei is a native Californian who has lived in San Francisco for the past 12 years. She began her career working in architecture and construction sparking an interest in art and design that ultimately led to a Master’s degree in Painting and Sculpture at the Academy of Art University.
Brei has been a lead faculty member of the Academy of Art since 2008, developing curriculum and teaching a wide array of sculpture classes.
