A BIT ABOUT ME....

 Michele Cleaver

Artist - Teacher - Creative Nurturer
Empowering You Through Creativity ♥

When I paint, all my worries seem to dissipate......

Mission: To Inspire, Educate, Empower and Uplift people through painting.

Vision: My purpose & passion is to help people realise their hidden talents;

to shine in all aspects of their lives in order to be the best possible version of themselves.

A contemporary Artist based on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria, My belief is that art and colour play an important role in our lives. Greatly influenced by colour, my art generates feelings of love, light and joy.

 

Painting has filled a fundamental need in my life, it has helped me deal with the negative aspects of life and given me a sense of fulfillment. The use of paint, brushes and tools allows me to feel as though I am taken into another world, feeling peaceful and uplifted.

 

Growing up, I wasn't particularly creative, I was an adult when I discovered Art. I enjoyed it and kept going, I quickly developed a deep passion and love of working with paint. This gave me the confidence, self-belief and drive to continue. It felt as though I had filled a gap I hadn’t even realised was there. Through my own life experience I feel a part of my journey is to encourage people to reconnect with the joy in their life through painting, therefore holding regular classes and workshops for adults & children at your location or mine. My motto is "Learn to Paint, Anyone Can".

With over 20 years of painting experience and having taught art to many people along the way, my painting styles are now numerous and can include fine detailed work, quirky, whimsical or layered drippy abstracts, often incorporating figures, words, birds and nature, in an array of vibrant colours. I enjoy the flexibility of painting with acrylics, using texture, collage and exploring various mixed media and abstract works.

My work is available online and at times is exhibited in venues and art exhibitions throughout Victoria, incorporating successful sales. I have held solo and joint exhibitions, along with sales throughout specialty shops.
