Michelle's art is characteristic of Abstract Expressionism. However, she has an uncanny ability to bring out unique and evocative imagery while revealing unexpected visual stories.
Inside the core of Michelle's art there exist layers of complexities which pulls the viewer in close to explore the journey.
"As a painter, I am interested in what happens when color, form, movement, and shape interact with each other forming their own dialogue.
Painting for me is as much about self discovery as it is about visual space. I paint in response to what my subconscious mind makes room for."
"Intuitive art is a visceral “listening”.
Trust the brush. Trust the process. Practice Patience. Meditate. Breathe. Sit and stare. It will come.
Working intuitively isn’t easy, fast, or even joyful. There is no formula. It doesn’t always come while I’m working. It comes at unexpected times or from a glance while doing something else. Sometimes works of art sit before they open back up and start speaking to me again, shedding clarity and direction."
