:: September Artists of the Month! ::

Check out our September artists of the month!

Danielle Burren is a Drawing and Painting/Art History major at UWM. Her drawings are primarily portraits of people. She ultimately hopes for the audience to understand these drawings as a series of portraits, or a framework in which they may place themselves and others.

Nellie Worden is an Art Education major at UWM. Being an art education major has given her the opportunity to explore a variety of mediums. She has taken a different approach to each one and never planned on creating a body of work that necessarily correlated. However, she has found that although different avenues, the concepts overlap in some way. "I've found out more about myself through the making of the art than I'd anticipated. This excites me and emphasizes why art is absolutely necessary and the creative process is an essential way of understanding oneself and the world around them. Some themes I explore in my work are perceptions (and nuances and uniqueness of each), growth and dying - the recycling of life, and underwater. Recently, I have become interested in retrospective thinking and knowledge based off experience and would like to explore that idea further."
