Michelle Wegler has always been drawn to draw. She initially worked in graphite, then discovered that working in pastel was both drawing and painting, allowed vibrant use of color, and did not require the mixing and drying time of paints. To make time to paint while her children were young she was able to set up her easel in the laundry room, where she seemed to spend so much time anyway. She now works in her own studio space in a historic building in Duluth, as well as outdoors year round.
As an award winning artist, Michelle sold her first painting at a student exhibit in high school, and now exhibits in local and regional exhibits and competitions. Commissions include calendar illustrations, portraits, and book covers. Her paintings have won awards and honors, and are included in private and corporate collections.Artist’s Site
