At The Habitat we like to surround ourselves with images, sound, art and energies that only help illuminate growth and positivity in our environment. The Habitat walls are adorned with images of our musical and athletic heroes as well as one of a kind pieces of artwork that reflects our diverse make up. MKE based artist and my beautiful friend Britt Musial has been what you would call The Habitat’s resident artist when it comes to anything involving color and metal. From MN to LAX pieces to an epic flower photo taking backdrop, Britt’s work elevates the energy of our space and aligns itself with the “made with love and passion” motto we apply to our “grown with love and passion” motto.
Continuous experimentation with mixed metals, wood, patinas, inks, and acrylics has brought Musial into an art bracket all of her own. Honing in on personal favorites such as skylines, sports teams, famous landmarks, and musicians, Musial has taken the standard photo to the next level giving it depth, quality, and a perspective and technique only her hands can create.
We are stoked for what she has in store next for the Habitat; currently working on custom etched metal pendants with the Habitat’s icon for our line of 5 panel hats. You can see more of her work at www.bkmusial.com (or IG @bkmusial) and even commission your own custom piece to elevate your space. Today also just so happens to be her 30th birthday. Happiest of birthdays to you my Brittle Bumpkin Bear and thank you for all that you do for The Habitat.
