Austin Moule


I currently live in Madison, Wisconsin and just received my MFA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. I grew up a few minutes from the ocean. Surfing was my favorite pass time from the age of 9 until I moved to the Midwest for graduate school at the age of 24. I have a strong affinity for the ocean and feel that it has in someway affected who I have become, or perhaps the way I view things.

I am not sure exactly why and when I decided to become an artist. I have always liked to make and design things. I always made drawings and painted my surfboards, as well as my friends' boards, and was often in charge of any drawing/designing that needed to be done amongst my peers, like for logos and stuff like that. Not knowing what I wanted to do when I went to school, (and being largely unaware that being an artist was even a possibility) I started pursuing a business degree but that wasn't working out for me. I thought about graphic design, but I hated working on the computer. Graphic design did, however, require that I take an introductory drawing class, which I THOROUGHLY enjoyed. From there I took more classes, got very involved in printmaking and was doing sculptural collage work at home and making lots of drawings. Before I knew it I was in graduate school with a proper studio teaching myself how to paint. People always say "do what you love" and I always wanted to do just that.
