Aaron McMullin

Saint Louis, MO

Aaron was born and raised by the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, among corn and soybean fields in Godfrey, IL. She attended Sarah Lawrence College, where her passion for finding creative ways to engage in social and environmental justice issues was celebrated and nurtured. She spent her junior year of college studying abroad in Tanzania, India, New Zealand, and Mexico on a program called Rethinking Globalization. It was on this transformative program that she was first introduced to the social and political history of cotton in India, the current struggles of Indian cotton farmers, and how she, a US citizen and someone who wears cotton, is connected to it all. This turned out to be the beginning of a deep exploration that she continues today.​

Aaron is dedicated to nurturing collaboration, creativity, compassion, and connection through the exploration of art and community. She is an activist, teaching artist, gardener and healer. Her studio is located in south St. Louis City. She is a first year MFA candidate at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville and is enjoying the chance to explore and expand her arts practice.
