Featherstone is a professor of art and head of printmaking at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. She earned a bachelor of fine arts from the University of Cincinnati and a master of fine arts from the University of Arizona.

Her creative practice spans multiple media including sculpture, printmaking, textile and clay to explore the wonders of the natural environment. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and she has taught art in three continents including North America, Asia and Europe.

In 2006 and 2013, she was awarded an Ohio Arts Council Award for Creative Excellence. She also was supported by the U.S. Embassy for a three-month residency in Prague, Czechoslovakia.

Featherstone has an interactive sculpture featured at Cincinnati Contemporary Art Center’s UnMuseum, a gallery of interactive art, and is currently working on transitioning Miami University’s print shop into a non-toxic, environmentally friendly shop.
