Mischell Riley is a bronze sculpture based in Carson City, NV. She worked as an apprentice on the MGM Lion in Las Vegas, has been commissioned for many public and private pieces, and most recently created "The Mind of Da Vinci" which debuted in Burning Man in 2016.
Her most recent project, funded on her own dollar to this point, is a passion project. Mischell has decided that in spite of available funding, she is going to start creating bronze monuments to women she admires, knowing that somehow these pieces will find homes and inspire little girls. Her first project is dedicated to a woman she has long since admired.
