We are happy to announce this semester’s artist-in-residence, Milwaukee-based artist, Liala Amin. Liala will be our spring semester [virtual] artist-in-residence. We look forward to having her at Sheboygan North High.

Liala Amin is a multidisciplinary artist exploring the facets of femininity through themes of spirituality, mythology, and personal identity. While painting is her preferred medium, her work includes mixed media paintings, drawings, and textiles. She flows between mediums to explore the intuitive nature of  art making. Amin considers her art a visual journal and an outlet to manifest introspection, storytelling, and process.

Amin graduated from the Peck School of the Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee  in 2014 with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Fibers. Her work has been exhibited within Midwest group exhibitions and has received features in several publications. She is currently an Artist in Residence at Var West Gallery in Milwaukee.

Mr. Juarez interviewed Liala about a couple of weeks ago for the art department’s virtual artist lecture series. You can view her artist talk by clicking here
