This painting of Lido Island, Newport Beach, CA, will be exhibited in the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association 2019 Invitational and will also be included in the 6th Edition Invitational Collectable Catalog.

Michele’s artwork is well known for its vibrant, captivating brushwork and passionate color. Her unique style and approach to painting is highly recognizable and her ability to capture a diverse subject matter in oil, acrylic and gouache has made her a much sought after instructor.

Michele’s background and career in architecture and her extensive background in drawing, enables her to explain, and show through her demonstrations, the complete painting process from initial conception, to design to paint application. Her approach to creating art is grounded in the theory that contrasting elements create dynamic, energetic paintings; warm/cool color shifts, thick/thin paint application, light/dark value passages, hard/soft edge transitions, saturated/neutral color application and other elements all come together in her artwork.
