As a juried member of The Howard Pyle Studio Group, Philadelphia Tri State Artists Equity and National League of American Pen Women-Diamond State Branch. Michele uses different mediums like oil sticks, encaustic, and mixed media to create her paintings. Each medium contains a different character which allows her to choose the one that will best express her artistic vision, at the time. Her subject matters are seascapes, florals, landscapes, and abstracts.
Michele achieves richness and depth by building layers of color. She then scrapes the layers to expose the substrata of colors, creating ethereal images, which attracts one to ponder the different layers of texture or scraped areas in the painting. Regardless of the specifics, the color depth, compositional balance, and surprising details within the image, it all works together. The result creates an uplifting piece, containing a sense of energy with lots of color and texture.
