Michelle’s ever expanding collection of watery abstracts that invoke ocean breezes and Low Country ‘scapes of dunes and seagrasses harken you to OBX and all the coastal Sea Islands in between. Influenced by all those field trips and the ability to soak up the very unique flavors up and down the coast she translates her travels and impressions into her interiors and onto the canvas as soon as she returns home to her busy Studio space where creativity expands and dreams flow so near and dear to her heart.
