To create a piece of art, Michele works best from photographs. The photograph a client chooses should capture the personality of the subject and demonstrate great expression. Michele can use one or several photos together to accurately portray the subject and enhance the drawing. (Combining a particular head with a particular body is not uncommon). Michele can also suggest different backgrounds, settings, etc. She can draw large complex drawings with many people, or just one subject. Clients will speak with Michele to clarify goals and artistic desires for the finished product. She has the ability and talent to meet expectations.
“My work is ‘guaranteed’ in the sense that if a touch-up needs to be done I will do it. For example, a person may not have accurately described the proper eye color for someone – it might need a little more blue.” Michele said.
