Watch Katie Musolff talk about her art and watercolor technique as she prepares the awards for Milwaukee's Sacagawea Awards.
An astute observer of nature, artist Katie Musolff paints plants and animals that she finds along the Mississippi River. Her current body of work, River Journal, consists of meticulous watercolor and gouache paintings that concentrate on the beauty and grace of her surroundings while embracing the remains of the organic world. Always working from direct observation, Musolff aims to capture the sense of wonder that drew her in to her subject in the first place.
A graduate of the Milwaukee Institute of Art Design with a B.F.A. in painting, Musolff has exhibited across the country and has received numerous awards in her field. She makes her home and studio in Western Wisconsin along the Mississippi River.
