Michele is an American born contemporary painter living in Melbourne with her husband and two children. She has her BFA from the Pacific Northwest College of Art, Portland Oregon, USA studying foundation fine art with an emphasis on graphic design and photography.
Prior to starting her painting practice she worked in the design industry for international giants such as Nike, Imagination, and her own boutique stationery company Cielo Blu, as well as having a freelance design practice. Michele’s extensive study of art, design, and practical application allowed her to push the limits of industry captains leading the market in products she helped produce.
The volume and breadth of commercially successful projects has given her insight in the current context of the art and design world. She has an in-depth understanding for abstracting ideas in intuitive forms, a love for minimal design, and how colour can impact one’s emotions. She has tackled her own inner self critic and learned how to quiet it to create her best work.
Michele’s abstract work explores conceptual themes related to her life experiences using intuitive techniques combined with mixed media mediums. She has skillfully taken her design and fine art background and reinvented herself as a fine art painter worth following, collecting and learning from.
