Michelle has been an artist her entire life.  Her earlier works were in colored pencil and pastel.  It wasn’t until after she took a detour into corporate life, and was looking to reconnect with her creativity, that she began to paint.  In time this led to Michelle leaving corporate America and becoming a full-time artist.
 
Michelle is known for her sexy figurative paintings. She has gained recognition for her strong, empowering renderings which highlight the beauty of the female and male body though use of accentuated lighting and color values. 
 
Her work has been seen nationally in art shows and publications. And her paintings hang in various collections throughout the United States, Canada, the UK and Africa.
 
When she’s not painting in her home studio, Michelle is most likely teaching in Laguna or enjoying the company of other Southern California artists.

Art for Michelle has always been about enhancing the environment around her. It’s why she works with LOCA to bring art to places and people who would normally not get that experience. Read Less
