Thanks to some mindless Milwaukee blog-surfing, I have come across the amazing work of Milwaukee painter, Katie Musolff. I love the way she captures the personality of her subjects. The paintings really seem to come alive to me–I can almost hear these people talking in their thick Milwaukee accents. Believe it or not, she’s in the same neighborhood as us, and I’m so glad to have found her. I’ll definitely try to check her out on Gallery Night on April 16th as she kicks off her new appointment as Artist-in-Residence at the Pfister Hotel in Downtown Milwaukee.
