WELCOME TO SEILTÄNZER! Seiltänzer is German for equilibrist, or tightrope walker, and is also the name of a Paul Klee print that I studied during my last year as an art history major at the U of Wisco. It was a point of reference for my work, as is all of Klee's work, along with his contemporaries. A small homage to one of the greats.

Check it out! I've just opened my Etsy shop with four small paintings! More to come very soon...

So here I am, starting this new venture. It has been about a month and a half since I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Madison with a BA in Art History (very handy in these tough economic times). I bit down hard on the nail of unemployment and decided to use whatever skill I could muster from my studio art classes (the most recent of which was in 2005) and make some art.

Trying to turn my skill into at least a part-time business had been a goal that had been tickling my brain for some time, but it was not until I was suddenly out of college and jobless that I really thought: there's no time like the present. CARPE DIEM!

So cheers to trying new things! I'll update this blog with current pieces I'm working on, featured art, places you can find my work, my travels, and anything else I find inspiring and worth sharing! Keep checking back!

  2. good for you Katie!!
