Biographical Info

As an active member of the National Association of Women Artists, Oil Painters of America and the Berkshire Art Association, Michelle entered the art world in 2002 as a gallery owner and is currently an art instructor and owner of Berkshire Paint and Sip in MA. After being diagnosed with cancer in 2004 she turned to painting for its therapeutic values. She’s primarily a self-taught artist who’s passion and perseverance has led her to become a nationally recognized, award winning artist, art instructor, and business owner who continues to encourage and foster creativity to those in her path. Her recent work is inspired by the art classes she instructs. She finds solace while teaching by creating her own work that encapsulates the lessons imparted on the students. She conveys the importance of using one’s personal life to produce artwork that is meaningful and visually interesting which is evident in her own work that tells stories of family, love of nature, and traveling adventures. Her work is shown regularly in exhibitions and is included in many private collections.
