My name is Michelle Dubois. I was born in Queens, NY, but have resided in the Tampa Bay area for the majority of my life. I've always been a creative - whether it be singing, acting, crafting, illustrating, makeup artistry, painting, etc. Only within the last few years have I discovered my love and gift of creating abstract art (in both painting and sketching). It's been a long time coming, but I believe our talents, gifts and abilities are revealed to us at different times in our lives - when we need it most and often through the unexpected - never late and always on time. I am self-taught. A lot of my art is intuitive and contains some type of florals and/or foliage. My choice of mediums are watercolor, acrylic and ink; I often use the three of them together. My go-to tool is almost always a palette knife. This is my second year participating in the Art Ties Us contest, and with how much I've grown since last year, I cannot wait to see how it comes out on canvas this year!
