Resume / CV

Carole Ann Milos, Artist / Owner

IMG-0743.JPG

I’m an artist living and working in West Allis, Wisconsin, married with two wonderful grown children. I trained at Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD) in the late 1980s. Recently came back into the art world and I’m loving the creative exploration and journey. 

 

I am an eternal optimist. Ultimately my art represents my love of nature and of my mission to share the positive experience of art, with the viewer.

 

Lately I’ve been expanding my painting and drawing skills into interactive art and have been experimenting with some fun projects. 

 

Behind the scenes I'm working diligently on creating interactive experiences for the viewers.  Watch for more to come and watch for a shift in the look and feel of this website.
