Kelly Lahl




I'm Kelly, an artist and designer based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This place is on the shore of Lake Michigan, in the mid-western United States. Thanks for stopping.

My work is evolving, as most things do. One thing remaining consistent is that it always starts with drawing and painting. Sometimes it lives as an art object. Other times it becomes digital, eventually becoming material for a designed product.

Process experimentation is important to my practice. I'm continually curious, combining media and blurring edges of separation between art, design and craft.

I take inspiration and reflect on many things in my natural surroundings: contemporary art and culture, fashion, art history, this massive lake, architecture, objects found in my daily movements, the industrial trains rolling past my studio window, and humanity.
