A self-taught painter, Michelle has developed a unique and recognizable style. Using hard edge lines, she aims to simplify intensely complex landscapes into their larger component parts. She works from photos and memories collected while exploring the beaches, forests and trails of Western Canada. Her compositions and colour palettes invite the viewer to take a deep breath and soak in some west coast calm and wonder.
