Description The pieces and strips in this painting are parts of other oil paintings that I have made. I cropped the paintings in order to get the colors and textures that I wanted, then placed them together digitally.
Michelle Calkins, Holland, Michigan Member Since December 2006 Artist Statement Since childhood I have found solace in the creation of art. It is my gift and I try not to waste it. My media of choice are oil & acrylic painting, sculpture and photography.
Having been a professional picture framer since 1990, the presentation aspect of the art world has been foremost on my mind. It is amazing what a great frame can do. Co-owning Four Corners Framing Company in Holland, Michigan since 1999 has afforded me a front row seat to changing tastes, styles and trends. For me, art and framing go hand in hand.
