Painter – Mixed Media
I am a fine art painter based in Tucson, Arizona.
Michele Batchelder is a professional artist who specializes in mixed media. Michele currently hold “Signature Membership” in Contemporary Artist of Southern Arizona. She is currently also an exhibiting member of the Contemporary Artist of Southern Arizona and Southern Arizona Arts Guild. Her art has been shown at the Tucson Symphony Orchestra and the Tucson International Airport. Michele also currently exhibits in many galleries in South Africa.
Michele started her art journey at the age of 3, it started with encouragement from her father, and she has not looked back since. By 1990 her love for painting took over and she embarked on her professional artist career. For 15 years she took part in many South African exhibitions. In 2015 Michele was the Exhibition Coordinator for the South African Society of Artists. 2017 she opened THE ART FARM on The Garden Route near Cape Town, South Africa. THE ART FARM was an art retreat, “where art and artists grow”. She now resides in Tucson, AZ.
Her inspiration is drawn from the images that she absorbs while travelling and then visualizes in her mind’s eye and translates that into textures, colors, and movement.
