Although born in Québec, Michelle was raised in Kingston Ontario.  Her pride in the downtown core – as well as the beautiful areas that surround this town –  are represented in the work she does.  Landscapes and cityscapes alike reflect her passion for the natural beauty of this wonderful city she calls home. 

“I did, for a long time, chase all these things that I wasn’t good at; I was trying to fill the void to get better at the things I was bad at. But it wasn’t until I leaned into and really accepted just what naturally happens and enjoy the process. Whatever naturally happens, you’re going to find an audience and the sense of self that comes from when you actually put your spirit on the canvas and people like it.
