Whitney Forsyth grew up in Manitou Springs, Colorado and began working with her hands and clay at an early age. She took her first clay classes at Bemis School of Art at the Fine Arts Center in Colorado Springs, CO.
In 2012, Whitney began to utilize one of her familiar motifs in a new way. In the Windward series, hundreds of delicate leaves or petals cascade together to create expansive custom wall installations. Since then, the series has grown to encompass multiple installations in art galleries, public commercial spaces, and even private residencies.
