Aimee Baldwin (she/her) is a tactile artisan with a formal background in Fashion Arts. She fell in love with clay while taking pottery lessons at Riverdale Farms in Toronto and set a goal to open her very own studio. In December, 2014, Aimee completed a four month intensive Ceramic Arts course at Haliburton School of the Arts. She opened Moon In June Studio in Kenora, Ontario on October 1st, 2015.
Being able to share her craft with future generations is important to Aimee & she has been fortunate to take part in the Artist In Residency programs offered in several elementary schools within her community. Aimee is a life-long learner; she graduated in June, 2022 with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Lakehead/Seven Generations Education Institute. She is also currently working on a wild clay project to explore the abundant natural materials that exist right under her feet.
Living in Northwestern Ontario has given Aimee a deep appreciation for the inherent beauty found within the natural world. Her creative style pays homage to brilliant star filled skies, cool shimmering lakes and rugged boreal forests thriving with flora & fauna. Aimee's work has a fresh woodsy feel to it: earthy, moody, whimsical, and often highly functional.
Aimee acknowledges that she is of settler origins & resides on the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe and Métis of Treaty #3. She has immense gratitude to be able to live and work on Turtle Island alongside its First Peoples.
