About the Artist
Michelle is a native Texan and has lived in Austin since high school. She graduated from University of Texas at Austin and worked in the tech industry for over 25 years before retiring to pursue creating art.
My passion is creating art that sparks joy and promotes kindness, love, and inclusivity. I am inspired by nature and follow my curiosity to create whimsical, vibrantly colored art. In my work, I use a combination of paints, markers, embroidery, and other mixed media. I have always loved things that are handmade, colorful, quirky and/or vintage, and I try to use upcycled materials where possible. Like people, there is something beautiful about art and objects that have personality and history. If something has been well loved and has imperfections, that creates character.
