Mischell Riley

We met Mischell Riley when we visited The Generator, a 30’000 sq ft art space located in Reno. The Generator writes on their website that: “We don’t buy. We don’t sell. We dream. We Convene. We Create. We Make.” Artists like Mischell work on multiple projects at the Generator, and also teach their craft to others as a way of giving back to the community. No money is exchanged for imparting knowledge or the use of tools and materials at the Generator.

Mischell was one of the few at the workspace that day, and although she was on her way out to make some bronze moulds, she kindly took some time to share more about her story and her experience working in the Generator artist community space. We began to realize what an amazing talent we had stumbled across, and with such a humble and happy soul. It’s a joy for us to share her personal journey.

Mischell teaches sculpting online and at the Generator.
