Here's Michelle: "Lately, my inspiration seems to be anything in the sky - birds, the moon, rooftops - I just love looking up and creating art that reflects what I see.
I'm definitely a mixed media gal: my work all originates with my camera, and then I leap forward from there. I collage, paint, and combine all my components digitally to create each piece, and I hand-make a line of art and housewares that feature my designs.
I like to tell stories within my art, and my very favorite thing is to hear the memories or feelings that my work inspires. Seeing someone smile or hearing them relive a happy childhood moment because of something I created is so incredibly rewarding."
It's a pleasure to have Michelle here today. Her blend of media and story is fresh and sophisticated. And very personal to anyone who views it! I love looking at her work because I can invent my own story. Thanks for sharing your work with us, Michelle!
Michelle is part of MamaCITA. They have a show opening next Sunday, Feb 8 at Cheltenham Art Center on Feb. 8, Cheltenham, PA (just outside of Philly). Look here for details.
