Tyanna Buie is a Milwaukee collage artist who explores her troubled childhood through her art. As a child Tyanna used art as an escape. But, as a product of the foster care system, her work was thrown away each time she moved. Today Tyanna uses the techniques of screen print and collage to reinterpret old photographs and memories. She is also a teacher at the Milwaukee Institute for Art & Design.
