Michelle in a Minute
’Moving from the big smoke
gave me the opportunity to pursue my passion for art. I had left it behind decades ago and at 50 decided it was time to see 'if I still had it'... I studied Art at High School, but I'd never dared to pursue it as a career, until I did! I studied Art Therapy in 2019 and was encouraged to pick up a paint brush and it changed my life! Now half of our home is Art space !
Living on the NSW South Coast (about 90 minutes from Sydney), I wake up to the sound of our Kookaburra's laughing, squawking Cockatoos and the Magpies warbling and this has inspired me to paint their vibrancy and I hope I capture that in my art. Attraction to birds was so found when I discovered the Quirky artwork by Vanessa Perske and it ignited a fire within.
I also enjoy the unfolding journey that Mixed Media Art brings with it's many options, as it allows me to let go and discover what is destined to blossom onto the canvas.
When I'm not painting I am encouraging others to get in touch with their own creativity by also picking up a paint brush, get their hands in the paint and enjoy an Expressive Art Experience (or two)...
Thanks to my art journey, I have been able to find my true essence and help others do the same.
