Missy Roll is a maker who has been working and living in Birmingham, AL, for 10 years. She holds degrees from Ringling School of Art and Design and Parsons School of Design in Fine Arts and Photography. Missy has always had an appreciation for function and home, leading her to focus on loop pile rug-making in her recent work. The repetition in making is a nod to Missy’s own everyday experience in her decision to quit drinking, which was driven by her mother’s diagnosis of alcohol-induced dementia. Missy’s current work reflects how her mother describes her memory due to the diagnosis.
