Kathleen Murphy Willer welcomed us into the environments she creates on canvas at our October Membership meeting. She shared many insights on creating and selling artwork that combines sgriffto, acrylic, oil pastel and pencil. Kathleen describes herself as an introvert, yet emphasized how talking at shows helps create valuable relationships and attracts commissioned work. With most of her pieces, the names come before the painting begins as she “sees” colors in every word. A Menomonee Falls resident, Kathleen reminded us that talent is all around us and to be persistent to follow your passion. She’s built a very successful business with the knowledge she shared with us.
