Featuring Milwaukee artist, educator, and designer Sara Terrell.

In my paintings I have combined my love for Milwaukee and architecture in a series called Feels Like Coming Home. Every property in this collection has created memories for me that have shaped my time in Milwaukee for the last 18 years. In my paintings you may see playful colors, imperfect lines and textured layers. These features not only describe my work but my life in Milwaukee as well. I hope as a fellow resident of this city or even just the world you can see yourself in these buildings and find a connection with me and the places around us.

Bio:
