Michelle discovered her passion for painting accidentally in an Art Fundamentals class at UofA in 2006. She received a Diploma of Fine Art from Grant MacEwan University in 2010 and has been wrestling with her creativity ever since. Michelle is the Purchaser at The Paint Spot and helps administer the Whyte Avenue Art Walk.
Michelle's medium of choice is encaustic painting. She loves how difficult it is to control and how this leads to endless happy accidents in abstract painting. Michelle paints to satisfy her love for colour and image and is absolutely inspired by the power that an image has to relate a feeling the way that words cannot. She paints in order to communicate feelings of hope, faith, perseverance and joy.
