Michele L. Patton
Growing up on the scenic banks of the Milwaukee River in Wisconsin, just a few miles from the awe-inspiring shores of Lake Michigan created a lasting impression and love of nature for Michele. Using her creativity and learning from other artists, classes and life experiences she has enhanced her ability to share her vision.
After moving to Texas, she concentrated on watercolor, was a member of the Watercolor Art Society-Houston and used the concept of negative space in her watercolors to show the depth found in nature. Later working in clay reinforced the enjoyment she finds in organic design. Today Michele is using alcohol inks, acrylics and mixed medium creating a style that explores the use of color and form to bring out the essence of nature.
Currently Michele lives in the Hockley area with her husband and enjoys the outdoors and gardening on their property. Recently retired from Tomball ISD, where she worked in finance and relied on her “left-brain” she is now enjoying retirement and the relaxed time to work on her art.
