Michelle Lindblom was raised in the Midwest of the 1960s and 70s. Defying the odds of traditional middle American expectations, she followed her intuitive nature, pursuing artistic endeavours.

Undergraduate studies in the fine art department at the University of New Orleans nurtured and liberated Michelle’s voice. Meanwhile, the entire New Orleans experience influenced and changed her perspective on the value of art and life in general. As she continued her higher education, the work she created transitioned toward the abstract. Realistic imagery no longer fueled or satisfied her soul.

Her education and a quiet persistence in the arts have offered Michelle rich experiences teaching at the elementary and college level, working as a gallery coordinator, exhibition juror and serving on community arts committees. She travels extensively and has been exhibiting her work across the United States since 1990.

Upon leaving her 24-year career as a fine art college professor and moving west, Michelle began focusing the narrative of her work on revealing the stories of her journey through life.

A painter and printmaker, Michelle works out of her home studio located along the Deschutes River in Bend, Oregon.

This piece is filled with layers of color, value, texture, patterns, movement and shapes all indicative of the landscape. My love of nature and concern for the planet is always on my mind. And although is was not my intention to create a landscape, intuition and my subconcious guided me in that direction, I used an actual snakeskin to complete the composition. The snake is a symbol of rebirth, renewal, transition but disruption must occur for that to happen.

This time lapse video was created using still photos of an afternoon painting session in my studio. The photography and video credit go to Abigail Anderson. Abby’s goal was to create a 2 minute video for the North Dakota Film Festival and we collaborated on the project with wonderful results. The music was provided by Kid with Beards and their song, “Time of the Season”. See more process videos by clicking on this link: Videos
