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.

“Out of the Shadows”, acrylic, 46″ x 32″
This canvas was created during the height of the pandemic when everyone seemed to be reassessing their lives, their routines. I was no different. My studio became a sanctuary in which I could release all the pent up “shadows” clammering to come to the surface. This particular canvas was a previously painted arylic, I had deemed unfinished. These already painted surfaces give me a foundation on which to revive, reorganize, re-texture, etc. Bring the imagery to a state of being that is more current. Taking the past and bringing it to the surface, so to speak.
