Feature Artist

Michelene was born in Toronto, Ontario Canada, and now lives in the Forest City area of Ontario.  She has been exploring different mediums for about ten years.  She has traversed areas such as collage, bookbinding, paper cutting, junk journals filled with gorgeous ephemera among others, but for the last two years painting has become her great focus. She paints in digital, encaustic, acrylic, oil paint and cold wax medium, with collaged items in the mix. 

After three summers of being an Artist in Residence in Baddeck, Cape Breton, her heart lives there, and the glow of inspiration arising out of the very air of the place has never left her, and her passion for abstract landscape painting has evolved into a driving passion.  

“I favour the more abstract perceptions, or understanding of landscapes, ideas and emotion. I lose myself in colour and delicious texture, sometimes scraping into the many layers that each work will inevitably have.  I am not afraid of the dark side of life, both inner and outer, and both can appear in my paintings at once.  Moving someone with my choice of colour, texture and substrate is a challenging and heart-pounding pursuit, but oh my, the joy when it happens is well worth it.”
