Laurie Michaels – Pastels and Photography

portrait of artist

Laurie Michaels

I have always considered myself an artist. Mostly self-taught, except for an inordinate number of high school classes, I love to explore with color and different media. Currently, I am doing a deep dive with soft pastels, exploring and discovering as I never have before. My main focus is the other creatures of the earth. I have always been drawn to animals and birds. I love showing them to people in ways they may not have seen them before.
