ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
After graduating from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Michele wove a career of commercial illustration and fine art. Galleries throughout Napa, Mendocino and Sonoma Counties showed her sumptuous landscapes to great acclaim.
In 2000, Michele moved to Oakland, CA. The shift to such an urban setting affected her more deeply than she could have predicted. She felt off balance and unable to paint. Once again, Michele returned to clay to get her bearings. This time it turned out to be a career change. The pots soon sprouted sculptural elements and it wasn’t long before she made the shift to pure sculpture.
In 2012 Michele moved to Los Angeles and found new inspiration in the desert landscapes of Southern California. The work expanded as she explored this very urban setting. It was here that she began her relationships with galleries.
In 2015, a move back to Sonoma County has brought more changes. The brightly colored works of the Los Angeles years have given way to white clay playing off of dark oxides.
