Cara Gay Driscoll was born in 1946 in Regina, Saskatchewan. From 1962 to 1986 she was a full-time mother and homemaker, while also managing part-time bookkeeping and painting. However, in 1986 Driscoll attended the University of Regina, initially to pursue painting but soon discovering an interest in clay. In 1993, Driscoll went to the University of Northern Territory in Australia to work under Jack Sures. Driscoll's hand-coiled vessels require a significant amount of time and intense dedication to complete. Using this traditional technique, Driscoll creates works that reflect historical, spiritual, and natural themes. Her 2000 exhibition The Forgotten Women of the Bible was inspired by a desire to give voice to biblical women, while 2003-2005's The Path to Mary seeks to acknowledge the contributions that others have to making art meaningful. Driscoll's pieces have been exhibited at several galleries including the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery (Waterloo) and the Assiniboia Gallery (Regina). Her work was also part of the 2010-2011 traveling exhibition 'Prairie Excellence'.
