About ASI / Instructors / Tia Keobounpheng

Tia Keobounpheng

Tia Salmela Keobounpheng is a designer/maker and artist living and working in North Minneapolis. She is heavily influenced by her Finnish heritage, modern design, and handcraft. Growing up with an architect father created a lens through which she viewed the world around her. Her laser-cut jewelry has been sold in museum and design shops across the country over the last ten years. Tia is a 2017 MN State Arts Board Grantee and is actively expanding her skill set to work in metal to create jewelry and an expanded body of work.
