Margaret Haydon earned her MFA in ceramics in 1989 from San Francisco State University. She is currently Professor of Ceramics at the University of Wyoming, Laramie, Wyoming. Her work is exhibited frequently around the country and internationally. With a special interest in the ancient sturgeon species, Haydon focuses on the idea of ongoing changes in habitat and animal narratives. Combining her aesthetic work with field-work, she has worked with fish biologists and naturalists in the United States, Canada and Hungary. In July 2013, Haydon gave a paper at the 7th International Symposium on Sturgeon, held in Nanaimo, BC, Canada. She organized and curated the exhibition, In the Company of Animals, which was installed in Kansas City at the Leopold Gallery, during the 2016 NCECA conference. Most recently her work was featured at the Loveland Art Museum in Loveland, Colorado in an exhibition titled Circling, and this June 2017, her work will be included in Fabricating Nature, an exhibition at the William Havu Gallery in Denver, Colorado.
