Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Morris-Cafiero graduated from the University of North Florida in 1999, earning degrees in both photography and ceramics. During that period, though, she was diagnosed with a condition known as hypothyroidism. This particular ailment comes about when a person’s thyroid gland fails to produce sufficient hormones. It can cause several side effects.

Some sufferers may feel tired or depressed, while others may put on weight. And Morris-Cafiero, who is now working at the Memphis College of Art, fell into the latter camp. But it also helped catapult her into the public’s eye and contributed to her own artistic endeavours in the last few years.
