About the Artist

Michelle Hendrickson (Mukilteo) received her BFA from the University of Alabama and her MFA from Washington University in St Louis, both concentrating in painting. She has also studied at the Leo Marchutz School of Painting in Aix-en-Provence, France. Although considered a narrative, expressionist and figurative painter, she is well experienced in drawing, printmaking, photography, clay and woodwork. Her comfort zone has always been to paint large and so being confined to a new smaller space with five kids to manage she is currently working on large scale drawings that still allow her to develop her narratives in the manner that she did with oil paint, and also allows her to explore a large manuscript quality that exhibits her love for medieval manuscripts.
