Michelle Lindblom was raised in the Midwest of the 1960s and 70s. Defying the odds of traditional middle America 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.
Visual Artist, Michelle Lindblom’s Featured Art of the Month
“Dissolving Landscape”, acrylic, 16″ x 36″
The inspiration for this canvas emerged through my subconsious and conscious experiences with nature’s constant and often nuanced disturbances. In addition this includes the parts of nature that seem to go unnoticed or to dissolve before we even know of their existance. There is so much beauty within our grasp. A beauty that can save us from ourselves and our often chaotic and hurried lifestyle.
Nature, will of course, survive us. It can also be our saving grace.
The price is $1350. Payment plans accepted. Contact me with questions. email@example.com
This video is a full length account of a live demonstration and discussion of my painting process during the Watercolor Society of Oregon Conference, April 2023 in Bend, Oregon. I paint to a selection of music, stopping periodically to discuss the work I am creating. I am in my element, funny and down to earth as I welcome my audience into the beauty that is the evolution of a painting. See more process videos by clicking on this link: Videos
