artist bio

Bachelor of Science - Art from University of Wisconsin Madison

Art Director/Graphic Designer for The BonTon Stores 16 years

Independent Jewelry Designer/Photographer on/off 25 years

Lived in 2 other countries: England and Costa Rica which influence my work in sometimes subtle ways

Inspiring/educating is something that is important to me so even if I'm not actually doing art you can bet I am teaching someone something or researching.

artist statement

Being creative can be a challenge especially when you are torn between making money/raising a family and doing things that inspire you, they don't always go hand in hand. Michele has worked around this by making a living and then doing what inspires on the side, needless to say she's still in the beginning stages of an "art career" even though she's had creative jobs for quite a long time..
Michele attempts to teach/inspire those around her whenever the chance arises whether it's art or science or good design. If she finds something interesting she'll share because it's likely someone else will find it inspiring as well.
Michele's art is very much about capturing things she fancies from day to day. Nature plays a large part of her life so being outdoors happens often. One day may be a pencil drawing, a still life in her living room or designing a trellis for the garden, the next it might be designing a necklace to go with a specific outfit for a night out. Another day may find her roaming the area taking photos. Her gammut is wide and her interests are varied.
Michele's most recent work encompasses acrylic paintings from photos that her oldest son has taken. Inspired by his views she decided to attempt to recreate what he saw in her way. She is really enjoying the challenge.
