Janet Mickelson, Fightin' Irish Country Member Since January 2007 Artist Statement I have always been fascinated by things of nature, trees, flowers, different formations and color schemes drawn by the hand of Mother Nature. Coming from the heart of steel and cement in Chicago, I was drawn to libraries and films to satisfy my interest in things that can't be made by man. After I married, I moved to Indiana where one isn't so hardpressed to travel very far to see parks and woods and places to explore. Whenever I travel, I never leave without my camera. Beauty can be found in the simplest things. Thank you so much for visiting my page!
