Michelle D. Wise
Graphic design, oil, mixed media
I am drawn to contrast — old and new, natural and man-made, word and symbol — and my art reflects that fascination. My imagery is informed by the span of human cultures over the centuries, contemporary signs of commerce and trade, and the products of the print and computer industries. I have a painting degree and a deep love for that tradition. Graphic design penetrates all aspects of modern life. My work marries these two art forms, art and design, and celebrates the juxtaposition of the timeless and the timely.
