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!! :)

Evil Bug Student Loves To Read

Evil Bug Student Loves To Read, by Boriana Giormova


Evil bug student is prepared to go back to school. She has a grin, eyeglasses and even tiny ribbons. Holding her textbook, she's waiting for lessons to start, eager to read. She doesn't forget to think about evil deeds which she can do this year.

A Tiny Bird

I had the honor of creating an adorable painting for a friend.  They have a little girl who they refer to as their "Tiny Bird," so I thought it was fitting to name the painting, "Our Tiny Bird."  I added a special touch to the painting, by adding the parent's initials inside the carved out heart upon the tree trunk.  They love the painting, and I am so humbled that they asked me to create something so special.  I've decided to offer this same painting on a few of my Product on Demand websites here is one:, Also, you'll find it in my ETSY shop.    our-little-birdie-canvas

A New Year And Spring Is Near!

2016 brings new beginnings! I moved into my new Art Studio the first of the year.  It used to by my sweet Mother-in-laws home (yep, she lived with us, and it was great!!).  She passed away last fall from the ugly disease, Cancer!  It was devastating to see her suffer towards the end, but we know that she is in better place.  My daughter and I actually both share the Art Studio.  I ended up getting a brand new drafting/computer desk, and gave her my old wood desk.  I love our new space.  I feel a sense of calm and I feel like my creative juices have exploded since moving in.   My new drafting/computer desk We also made my Mother-in-law's old bedroom into the Music Studio.  My son plays the drums and xylophone, my daughter plays the bassoon, piano, and sax.  I feel in my gut, that their Grandmother is always enjoying her visits with us.  In fact, we left her old Lazy Boy recliner in the same exact spot in the room.  I know she would be proud of what we did with her space.  We miss her dearly.   Screen Shot 2016-03-07 at 8.34.14 PM   Screen Shot 2016-03-07 at 8.34.50 PM
