Katie Madlom, Wisconsin Member Since February 2007 Artist Statement I am a freelance Artist. I make black & white film photography and some digital images. I also do lithography, Intaglio, wood cuts, linoleum cuts, and some silk screen prints. I recently earned my AAS Degree in Graphic Arts and Multimedia. I can also create brochures, business cards, letterheads, or any other graphic design need as well as create websites.
I started out drawing faces. It was my hobby, my joy. The more I drew them the more I started understanding faces, not just in how to draw them but in how to see them. To see the emotions, the thoughts, the feelings in each portrait I drew.
In my art, I like to capture those ideals. The emotions of our stuggles and fears, our joys and sorrows. Because that is where one becomes connected to another, through our past experiences. One becomes who they are through those experiences. And one makes decisions through the experiences that once had them floundering in question.
