A jeweler and metalsmith from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Corey Reid creates jewelry, sculptures, and vessels with a focus on transformation, emotion, and identity. Growing up as a mentally ill, queer person has greatly influenced these ideas in their work and their artistic expression.
Reid was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1996. From a very young age they were interested in the arts, wanting to go to as many museums and take as many classes as they could. They are continuing their pursuit for artistic knowledge by studying at Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, majoring in Studio Arts with a concentration in Jewelry and Metalsmithing.
