Smere Tactics is a Madison- based artist creating woodcuts and hand printed goods featuring witchy heroines and creatures that are real, imagined or extinct.

Her Suitcase of Curiosity, fashioned from a former 1920s travel crib, both transports and displays a collection of  hand-printed stickers, magnets, 

iron- on patches and other art forms for your dark nerdy sensibilities.


I enjoy using recycled objects because I can give them a new life. 


My ideas are inspired by dreams, imagination, and the colors of the world. I want to give items that would normally be considered trash a new purpose through my ideas. 


I hope you find my work to be exciting, and find enjoyment through it. 


Miranda Fields is a 25 year old artist living in Madison. She's attending her last semester at UW Madison, where she's earning an art education degree.


Miranda says, "My entire life I have loved arts and crafts. I derive so much pleasure from creating things I can use in my everyday life. I enjoy making costumes, as well as pushing the boundaries of subject matter with my artworks. I enjoy working with political and social issues, taboo subjects, dark and gory themes, as well as crossing them with cute and colorful themes. I enjoy the juxtaposition of things and enjoy making artworks I could enjoy in a cabinet of curiosity. I create a wide array of art from ceramics, paints, dolls, dice, and more. I love to share my joy with others and how to engage thought and questions with my artwork!"


Welcome to my Creepatorium, where I rescue broken kid's toys & turn them into macabre treasures!


I have a fascination with anatomy & creating visceral reactions. I'm a self abuse survivor & have turned my darkness to delight for you all to enjoy.


Many of my pieces are autobiographical atrocities that I have a dark sense of humor in presenting. I adore writing their origin stories & capturing the beauty in the seemingly bleak. I call it Glitter Gore.


These Toyz are meant to be played with, loved & cherished.


I have been greatly influenced by science fiction and cartoons from my childhood.


I am a daydreamer by nature and wonder what the future might look like for the human form.


My paintings explore the feelings, concerns and questions I have around artificial intelligence, body enhancement, gender and the loss of nature as we know it.


Art has always been enthralling to me, regardless of the medium. For me, creating is compulsive. I need to make art in order to be okay. 

My creative mind keeps me brave. It's too full of ideas, too bright with overflowing faith to make room for worry.

Everyday, I strive to be guided by the knowing creativity that lives inside me. 



We come together to create unique and funky one-of-a-kind pieces of art.


Some you can wear, some you can hang on the wall, and some you can even hang on the Christmas tree. 

Our work makes a great holiday gift!


I revel in capturing important moments.


I’m in awe of the power a photograph gives us to relive our most precious moments.


I believe it’s one of the greatest gifts we can give - that’s why I’m so passionate about being a photographer.

I have been a dancer for as long as I can remember but I’m mostly self taught. My main style of dance is hip hop but I also fit under an all styles dancer due to the fact that I love learning and mixing all styles of dance to make it represent me. Dancing has become my own therapy and I try to show a lot of emotion. When I dance, I feel free
