Elaine Scheer’s often-humorous watercolors introduce us to her family, and events that have happened from before she was born to the present. Scheer first came in Wisconsin in the freezing winter of 1987 to participate in Arts/Industry at the Kohler Toilet factory in Sheboygan. She has been at the University of Wisconsin-Madison since she was hired in 1988 as a lecturer in ceramics.
