side of human nature, the respect with which a child must be treated, stopping bullying, harassing or
cruelty. Recently Michele has added bright colors to her paintings that vividly outstand as a Geometric
complement to her unique works.
Michele had said about her Art and inspiration: "I worked in oils since early life... The cause for which I
create is my acute foresight and sense of the interconnectedness of all elements of all time. The dialogue
I consign includes all elements past and present, their atmosphere and their energy collective interacting
with one another. I paint to deliver a vision that others have not seen, what is seen and unseen, beauty
after tragedy, existence pictorially fragmented, as the energy and emotion around each being. I engage,
evolve and cultivate these works until the moment does arise that I produce them. I recognize the
progression in color, form, material, and shape... Current events are capable of influencing and altering
the works. Present affairs impact the images but frequently their purpose is so interwoven with the past
that they often forecast occurrences before they transpire. My works and their implications are
everlasting. I paint stories of the human experience. The soul of life depicted in figures interacting within
a realm of time. I carry and grow images from inside myself, until I create."
Widely exhibited, collected and awarded in USA and abroad, Michele was recently represented by
