In order to keep my creative tank chugging along I like to fill it with all sorts of visual fuel. This "Tuesday's Artist" thing is my way of sharing some of the artists that inspire and delight me. I asked them to do a little finish-this-sentence sort of mini-interview so we might get to know them a little better.
This week's spotlight is shining on Michele Maule. Living and working here in Portland, Michele works in a variety of media. I like that she manages to combine collage elements into her paintings in such a cohesive way. She has a knack for editing and restraint that I really admire in a mixed-media artist. I especially love how she elevates everyday objects, captures small moments, and I find her work to be beautifully restful.

I hope that my art resonates with people.
