Stacey Williams-Ng

I’m a painter and illustrator based in Milwaukee, WI. I am also an instructor at lynda.com, and on Creative Live, teaching storytelling for artists, creativity, and other fun things.

I am mostly a mural painter these days, but I also make drawings and paintings. Themes in my paintings include strength, femininity and identity; self-awareness and athleticism. I mostly love doing images of the figure and psychological portraits.

I am the founder of Wallpapered City LLC, an agency supporting mural arts in the city of Milwaukee and beyond. I’m also an adjunct faculty member at the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD), and an instructor/documentary subject on lynda.com.

Selected Works

 

In my portraits, I explore how people present themselves to the world. I draw parallels between the tradition of spectacle and performance with the more mundane observations that we make about one other in our daily lives. Makeup, costumes and hairstyles factor into a system of adornment that we all employ to project something about ourselves. More broadly, my artwork is an investigation into the archetypes that have shaped our society for centuries. The circus is at once a reflection of these roles, and a home for society’s cast-offs.

 

 

Chalk Art

Large-scale chalk art is a passion of mine, and I have traveled far and wide to perform as a chalk artist. My specialty is faces and fairytale subjects. Please feel free to peruse my online portfolio of giant street art and contact me if you’d like me to perform at your next event.
 
 
 
 

 

Graphic Design

I was a Creative Director and multimedia graphic designer for most of my adult life—so although the focus of this portfolio website (and my current life) is on my painting & writing, I am still available for the occasional graphic design assignment, if there’s a fit. Please feel free to review my Design Portfolio or contact me if you’d like to discuss a project.
