Meet the artists
Micheline’s need to create has inspired her children and grandchildren to express themselves through the visual arts.
I have always created. I cannot separate art from life. I paint everywhere and on almost every-thing. I think of art when I wake up and dream of art when asleep. Buddhas, angels, nurses, moms and children are recurrent themes. How I embrace life is how I express it through art. What interests me is how we transform the simple ordinary moments, as well as the complexities of life’s journey into peaceful, beautiful and meaningful works of art. This endless spiritual quest remains an ever exciting and magical path.
As an artist, I make efforts to choose methods and materials that respect the earth. In my collage, I use materials that are found, recycled and re-used, rather than bought. As well, I use water-based paints, acid free glue and cotton rag and stone paper. I am constantly seeking new ways to ‘green’ my art.
