During the 1970s, artist Celine Farrell took welding, metallurgy and foundry classes at Milwaukee Area Technical College. By 1980, she had created a set of techniques to create aluminum castings from polystyrene patterns. Over the next 33 years, she remained enrolled in the foundry, casting over 200 sculptures. Working within the themes of puzzles and natural cycles, Farrell creates castings that are reverent and playful.
Celine Farrell earned a BFA in Advertising Art from the Layton School of Art in Milwaukee, WI an MFA in Painting from the Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, MI, and an MA in Sculpture from Pius XII Institute in Florence, Italy. A born-and-raised Wisconsin artist, Farrell purchased a Cream City Victorian commercial building in the Walker's Point Neighborhood in 1972 and has lovingly restored it for over 40 years. She takes great pride in her building's garden which features many native Wisconsin flowers and grasses. She's been a part of countless solo and group shows and has public sculpture on permanent display in Milwaukee's south side.
