|Michele has evolved as a skilled, intuitive, and intensely passionate student of Life. Her grasp of the craft of picturemaking is evident. The Great Tradition is reflected in her direct lineage to the forbearers before her, the Old Masters. As the French Academic and Impressionist Schools once opposed each other, Michele has embraced both traditions to reveal the power of seeing with the passionate response of appreciation, as Truth wields her brush being Guide and Mentor.|
