She studied ceramics at Andrews University (BA, English Literature, 1993), Sheridan College (Ceramics Diploma, 2001) and Alfred University (MFA, Ceramic Art, 2003).

Sormin’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, most recently at United Contemporary (Toronto, ON), Patricia Sweetow Gallery (San Fransisco, CA) and Ferrin Contemporary (North Adams, MA).  She was a participant at the European Ceramic Workcentre in the Netherlands this summer, creating new work for the group exhibition “Ceramics in the Expanded Field”, opening Oct. 16, 2021 at MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA, and for upcoming exhibitions at Messums, London, UK and Peach Corner Gallery in Copenhagen, Denmark.
