More About Michelle Louis

IconInspires

What inspires you?

My paintings are diverse as the natural world that inspired them.

IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I don’t begin with sketches or a plan. I am wide open to the emergence of something unexpected, unexplainable. I love the excitement of facing a large-scale, blank canvas. I just start painting. The magic that occurs between the present moment and what comes next reflects nature’s alchemy and that’s where I engage.

IconMagnifying

What are 3 words that best describe your work?

bold, playful, connected

IconUser

Who are some artists that have influenced your work?

Women artists of the 20th Century and my own artist friends are my strongest influences.

IconTool

What is the most important tool when creating your work?

An open mind is my most important tool.

IconGive

What is the best piece of advice you have been given?

Get out of your own way, and don't be afraid

IconLightbulb

Where do you go for inspiration?

Quietly exploring wild places everyday, I see things that normally go unnoticed. Animal interactions are common and day-to-day changes in the land and its inhabitants are more easily spotted. Back in the studio, painting extends that sense of how it feels to be immersed in the wilds, vulnerable, yet uninhibited and fully connected.
