Tamara Fox was born in Salt Lake City, UT but spent her childhood and teens in Las Vegas, NV. She returned to Utah in 1998 and started school at Utah Valley University. During this time she began delving into the creative world of art taking classes in oils, watercolor, and drawing. In 2003 her work was included in a student show at the Woodbury Art Museum in Orem, UT. She left school to start her own green cleaning company, Elemental Cleaning and Organizing. As full owner of the company she continues to expand the business. In 2008 she decided to focus more seriously on her artwork and began classes in pottery. She started an Etsy store called Monster Menagerie in 2009 and in 2010 she started Gray Wall Gallery with partners Matthew Hall and Sarah Cuvelier. In 2011 she was the driving force behind the first annual Urban Arts Festival presented by Gray Wall Gallery and the Utah Arts Alliance.
Sarah Cuvelier was born and raised in Southern California. She and her family moved often, but found comfort in doing art projects and sewing with her mother. Sarah started pottery at the age of 14 and hasn’t stopped since. At the age of 16 Sarah moved to Bountiful, UT to finish high school. After sewing lots of prom dress’s to save money for an education, she then attended Utah State University to further her study of pottery and art history. After college, Sarah put her art work on hold to serve an 18 month service mission for her church in Indiana. Married in 2010, she started a family, but it wasn’t until her daughter Ellie died that Sarah needed to returned to her roots and began sewing and pottery again. Sarah began teaching community education pottery classes at East High, and has been there for over 6 years. Freelance sewing (alterations and design) have kept her busy while she isn’t teaching.
Shortly after graduating with a BFA from Alfred University’s (Alfred, NY) Matthew Hall moved back to Salt Lake City, and began working as an artist and a graphic designer. As an artist he has exhibited in different mediums and venues. Recent highlights include the Utah Teapot show (The Tea Grotto, Salt Lake City, UT), and Transgressions & Transmutations (23rd Atmosphere Group Gallery, Chicago IL).
