Welcome to my little home on the web. My name is Michelle.
I have loved art and being creative for as long as I can remember. I also love learning.
Then there is “All of the things” and yes I love all of the things! There I said it!
There are so many wonderful fun creative things when it comes to being artistic that its hard to choose just one or even a couple. I know because I have learned and explored many creative things in my journey as an artist and a maker.
Some people like to stick with a particular medium and others like to be the kind of souls that thrive on variety and bringing new things to our creative table. I am definitely the creative variety kind of person.
Exploring “all of the things” has brought so much to my creative process over the years. I wouln’t be the artist I am today without all that influence.
These simple words “what if” are part of what drives me in my creative exploration.
I find myself wondering, germinating on ideas to see where I can take a piece. Sometime they take me to the most unexpected place and sometimes they don’t work out. But either way I always learn something about myself and my art.
Time spent exploring new options and ideas is part of the thrill of the art for me.
If you know me you know that Color is one of the aspects I love to explore in art. Bringing bold vibrant color to a piece just pulls me right in and I want to play with that process and see where it takes me.
I am always on the lookout to bring things together in a different way. It’s one of the ways I just fall into my art everyday.
You will find
My love of art and exploration have led me to explore many art techniques and mediums along the way. Each one of these journeys has taught me something and brings itself to my creative process in different ways.
You will find many pieces in my galleries of many of the mediums I love including pastel, oils, watercolors and charcoals.
My NEWEST LOVE is digital art using PROCREATE.
I am loving my digital painting journey and learning so much. If I had to say one thing about digital art and procreate is that it has opened up a whole new world to me much more beyond the learning of digital painting.
It has allowed me to be braver and more confident in my art adventure trying things I may have avoided in traditional art for many reasons. I learn more and more everday and will be sharing that with you.
Tutorials, tips, techniques, time-lapse, brushes all for procreate are coming soon.
I love to learn but I also love to share and to teach. Keep watch as there will be new classes coming soon. Tips and inspiration and lots of creative stuff.
