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
“Serpentine Movements”, monotype, 24″ x 30″ (framed)
This monotype was created using an actual snake skin. I inked up the plate and placed the skin; running it through the press several times. Each time I fliped the skin in order to reveal the inked side. The colors I chose were similar to parts of the snake skin, various greens and blues. The shedding of skin (in this case the snake) signifies renewal and transformation. The piece itself depicts the path/paths we manuever as we move toward some sense of calm and peace.
The price is $925 and includes framing. Payment plans accepted. Contact me with questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
