About the Artist

New Jersey born artist Michele Barkley (Seattle) has always believed in Magic—that divine connection between Spirit, Intention and Creativity. The urge to apply paint in sweeping whimsical movements has been a lifelong companion. Gesturing intuitively, colors, textures and forms emerge from ‘the void’ of blank canvas. Her art opens doors for viewers to journey inside manifestations of muse-inspired “worlds within worlds,” where departure is likely, return is optional, and paradigms shift independently.
