DECEMBER ARTIST OF THE MONTH: SARAH SHEARD

October's featured artist Katie Willmering is a Milwaukee based Illustrator and Graphic Designer. Her work is created in Procreate and Adobe Illustrator.


Katie's artwork evokes the imagination and creates a connection between humans and nature. Her focus on nature roots from her lifelong fascination with the outside world and the beauty it naturally creates. She believes art helps bridge ideas between people's minds and that's what she loves most about illustration.

NOVEMBER ARTIST OF THE MONTH: CASEY NIEZNANSKI

November's featured artist Casey Nieznanski, is a woodworking hobbyist from New Berlin who specializes in combining traditional handmade woodworking with digital CNC milling. His specialities are in making custom decorative signage for home or business using both common and exotic hardwood which as he says "is way cheaper and less regrettable than tattoos if you're looking for permanent personal expression!" Casey enjoys finding stunning colors, grains, and textures from natural hardwoods and matching them with the graphic or phrase the customer is looking to express. For the most part, the sky's the limit for what Casey can carve into wood.

AUGUST ARTIST OF THE MONTH: JOSH LEVERENCE

Our featured artist Josh Leverence is a self-taught artist currently living in the City of Milwaukee with his wife Elise and cat Luna. Baby Leverence is also due in November! Josh was born and raised in Milwaukee and his strong connection to the city is what inspires his art. Most of the subjects of his work are local Milwaukee and Wisconsin landmarks. He works primarily in watercolorand ink, but has dabbled in relief printing over the years. He is currently working on learning to paint people and animals, but would like to develop that skill further before displaying it to the public. The name "Lynndale Print" pays homage to the shop Josh's grandparents once ran in Pewaukee (Old Lynndale Farm). He wanted to keep the name alive, and that is why he calls himself Lynndale Print. Josh currently sells original watercolor artwork, high-quality print reproductions, and stickers. His work can be found on Etsy as well as in the Historic Milwaukee Gift Shop located in downtown Milwaukee. He also loves to take building commissions, if you would like your own home painted. You can contact him via Instagram or email for commission inquiries.
