About Michelle

I'm a Momma of twins and married to a wonderful man of 20 years. I love to read, garden, bike ride, roller blade, and create art. I've always loved to create art, but never really thought of sharing it. Raising a family has always been a top priority for me and now that my kids have been in school full time, I figured, why not get those creative juices going again. I've taken some drawing courses from a local college in the past, and a few in High School. Bottom line, I'm a self taught artist. I love it! So grateful to share it with the world!! :)

Who Knew Watercolors Could be so Much Fun!

I’ve been experimenting with watercolors lately and I am loving them. Definitely my new favorite medium.

These are just a few of my first paintings.

I can’t wait to see what my paintings will look like, six months from now. As they say, practice makes perfect.

Oliver the owl was relaxing on his favorite tree branch when all of a sudden an adorable ladybug appeared to pay him a visit. They admired each other and eventually became great friends.

Drawing Llamas

I am now working on my llama skills. I think llamas are so adorable. I love their big beautiful eyes and long necks.

Interesting Facts about Llamas:

  • Llamas have an excellent sense of smell, hearing and eyesight.
  • Llamas are expressive animals.  If they are not happy with another llama, they will stick its tongue out, or spit on them. 
  • Llamas are similar to camels, in that they can survive for weeks without water because they collect moisture from the food that they eat.
  • Llamas manure is almost odorless.  Wow!
  • Llamas can live to be 20 years old.

The digital version of Oliver, in progress.

Introducing my newest owl. His name is Oliver.

I created him on paper first, and now I’m creating him digitally. That way I am able to offer this piece of art on a variety of products, via Product on Demand websites.

Oliver will be #10 of my Wildlife Series. I’ll be sure to post here, once he is available for purchase.

Have a wonderful week, everyone!
