Lew Cadkin is an artist based in southeast Wisconsin. He entered the design program at Southern Illinois University. Along with traditional design skills, the department offered an expanded definition of design and problem solving. Buckminster Fuller, who made his geodesic domes famous, was affiliated with the University and design department.

After a varied career in manufacturing and consulting, he has continued his love of photography and lends his own style to the composition and rendering of subjects, and projects that he thinks are compelling.
