Mathis earned a B.F.A. in ceramics and painting from MTSU and began work as a full time artist in 2004. Her work often uses animal imagery, contrasting textures, and poetry. She has exhibited her work in Nashville, Atlanta, and Chicago, as well as art and craft fairs around the country.
By some series of events and circumstances, clay is what I came to know and do, and luckily I stumbled upon the desire to communicate through it…I suspect that my medium chose me instead of the other way around, thereby keeping my hands in the earth every day, and lending itself most graciously to the environmental nature of my work. – Mathis
