Michelle first discovered her passion for painting when she attended the Art & Art History program at the University of Toronto. After graduating, she furthered her studies with Interpretive Illustration at Sheridan College and pursued commercial art for several years before solely concentrating on her love of oil painting.
Moving north to Alliston, Ontario she began to experiment with her approach to painting and it has since evolved into a distinct style of semi-abstract narratives. Developing her imagery and composition is an exciting first step in the process of creating her paintings with most ideas and thoughts worked out on the canvas. Her focus on free-flowing lines and shapes creates a continuity of movement and connectedness throughout each piece. This blend of imagery gives the paintings their surrealistic quality and presents a narrative or story that is open ti interpretation and unique perspectives.
New to the Alton Mill Art Centre in 2023, Michelle is thrilled to be part of such a dynamic artistic environment!
