Hiromi Iyoda was born in a small town in Japan. Growing up with a modest background, a sketchbook and coloring pencils were the best toys to play with. Soon she became inventive and fashioned her own toys out of mundane material. Eventually, Hiromi traveled to America to further her education. She holds an Associate Degree in Art and a Fashion Design Certificate from the Saddleback Community College. She began studying ceramics at the California State University of Long Beach and finished her BFA in 2011. She finished her MFA in Ceramics from the University of Nebraska Lincoln in 2015. Hiromi is currently an artist in resident at Red Star Studio in Kansas City and an adjunct professor at the University of Missouri Kansas City. Hiromi makes figurative and narrative clay sculptures. Her work is based mostly on her past and current life experiences.
