April’s Writer

It’s officially Spring! April is just around the corner, and we’re ready to announce our next writer: Caroline S. Knickmeier! We are so excited to share her poem, Cables, with our readers next month. Check back soon to find out where we will be installing, and in the meantime you can find out more about Caroline below. Congratulations, Caroline!

Caroline S. Knickmeier is an artist and writer located in southwestern Wisconsin. Caroline studied religion at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, literature, art, and wilderness forestry at the University of Montana, Missoula, MT, (where she earned at BA in Liberal Studies and Wilderness), goldsmithing and design in northern MT at Flathead College, and landed in Madison, WI to study photography, painting, and ceramics at Madison College.

Caroline grew up traveling when she wasn’t outdoors in Wisconsin. Her travels influenced her candid photo-journalistic approach to photography and time spent outdoors developed in her a deep affinity for the land. Her candid nature photography is her way of encouraging and promoting conservation, by bringing to the audience’s consciousness all the natural wonders surrounding us daily, even in the city she calls home. She believes art is a result of ideas and experiences, so she continues to read, study, and experience. She believes writing is another medium by which to express and explore life experience. She considers art experiencing and making essential to life.

Her work has been shown in the Overture Center for the Arts, the Janet Carson Gallery, FSTOP Magazine, Tye Johnson Gallery, Arterie Fine Art Gallery, John Michael Kohler Arts Center Gallery, Gallery Marzen, Edgewood College Gallery, University of Wisconsin, Madison, Lofts Gallery, The Whole 9 Gallery, Light, Space, and Time Gallery, and published in the Yahara Journal, among others.
