About Us

Twisted Pencil Art features the work of Milwaukee artist Sarah Friedland. Through graphite pencil drawings, Sarah explores the intersection between mental health, self-expression, and the natural world. Her work is inspired by the delicate balance between the chaos and beauty of the surreal and her love of nature and animals. Sarah strives to create pieces that evoke emotion and encourage introspection, ultimately serving as a therapeutic outlet for herself and a means of connecting with others on a deep, personal level. Each mark she makes with her pencils is an extension of her journey towards self-discovery and healing, a celebration of our shared human experience, and a tribute to the majesty of the world around us.
