Terrill Knaack – Following graduation from UW-Madison, Terrill was the understudy of Owen Gromme, the curator of zoology at the Milwaukee Public Museum, after which he became a full-time professional artist. The focus of his work is landscape and wildlife art, painted with oil on canvas, as well as photography. Terrill’s paintings have been shown at natural history and fine art museums across the United States, including the Explorer’s Hall National Geographic Society. He has been in numerous international shows, including multiple Leigh Yawkey Woodson “Birds in Art” exhibitions. In addition to his art, Terrill has been involved in numerous projects involving ecological restoration, including priority watershed work, land restoration and educational opportunities. He taught for ten years at Wayland Academy which included an ecology-based class entitled The Unity of Art and Science. Terrill is currently an Artist in Residence, and artist mentor, for UW Madison’s Limnology Center at Trout Lake. He continues to paint at his studio and in the field.
