Michele’s paintings are whimsical, boldly colourful—slightly mischievous; not married to reality but quite divorced; living happily ever after. Paintings are acrylics and mixed media collage. Flaunting the rigor of technical proficiency of line and colour, Michele plays with perspective, subject matter and emotional interpretation.
Michele was honoured by the selection of several of her paintings to be part of the permanent collection of Cambridge Memorial Hospital because hers was art that might “make someone happy”. Michele’s paintings can also be seen at various galleries and in private collections throughout southern Ontario.
As a graphic recorder & facilitator, Michele brings a bold use of colour, whimsical drawing skills and her career experience in law, mediation, mental health, business and social innovation. Clients include regional government, non-profit organizations and educational institutions.
Michele was recognized in 2013 as a Woman of Distinction for Cambridge YWCA for her contributions to local arts and culture. Michele was Cambridge Centre for the Arts Artist-in-Residence in 2014 and Artist-in-Residence for the City of Waterloo June to October, 2016.
