"Color, light and mood are the three things I try to master in my paintings. the for
studying the enormous variety of landscapes. Mixing colors in oil paints blends
the colors of a landscape into a rich quality."


Each painting leads on to the next in a continuous journey of learning

Michele's paintings are done in the style of the old masters....on stretched raw linen.

Her classical training is evident in the masterful use of color, light
and shadow. Each painting is done in 4 to 8 layers for the
style immediately and her buyers are located in every state.
