Rosy Petri

Artist In Residence, Pfister Hotel

Passing through the halls of the historic Pfister hotel, one can’t help but be drawn to Rosy Petri’s entry-way salon. She’s brought the intimate space to life with fabric portraiture and mixed media, the signature artistic styles for which she’s become known.

A wife, a mother, a writer, a cook, a project manager, a podcaster, a business woman – Rosy has embraced her diverse talents to explore what it means to dedicate one’s life to being creative. Spend some time with Rosi, getting to know how she’s making her mark as an artistic entrprenuer. Let her journey inspire you as you create your own path to expression.


Rosy Petri is a multidisciplinary artist that pieces together art, writing, and auditory narratives to bear witness to humans being. She is currently focusing on fabric portraiture as the Artist in Residence at Milwaukee’s historic Pfister Hotel.  Through various mediums, including fabric portraiture, quilt-making, photography and mixed media, Petri showcases her passion for social justice, art and storytelling. She is most well-known for her series of quilt portraits of famous American musicians that pay homage to the country's diverse history of music.

Petri currently exhibits her work at the David Barnett Gallery and 5 Points Art Gallery and Studios in Milwaukee. She is also the owner of Milwaukee-based Paradise Home Goods, where she sells heirloom quilts, handsewn accessories, women’s apparel, as well as handmade candles and body butters. Petri has been recognized locally for her work, including being named a Milwaukee Artist Resource Network (MARN) mentee in 2018 and recognized with an artist award at the 2018 Bronzeville Cultural and Arts Festival.
