Michelle attended art school until her allergies to convention and institution were realized, at what point she turned to the school of Mother Nature to take flight. Trips to vast continents rejuvenated her passion for the palette and the result is right before your eyes.
Between her teaching, surfing and spirituality, Michelle’s life and art embody the essence of balance.
From abstracts to realism all of Michelle’s creations stem from the world she has lived or the world she wishes for her two children. Her full heart, open mind and aristocratic hands come together to build the art of today infused by the lessons of the past to mold the figure of the future. When Michelle can't get into the studio, she keeps her hands busy with her jewelry line, Ahava Designs.
Michelle lives in Malibu, California with her husband and two beautiful sons.
