Using mandalas, Michele has come a long way from her challenges of CFS and then cancer. As she was healing, she was flooded with images of flowers, plants and animals overlaid with sacred geometry. Not sure of their meaning, she knew they were not only for her healing, but for others as well, and she created mandalas from the visions. The mixed-media paintings consist of ink transfers on hot press Arches watercolor paper and are over-painted with watercolor and or gouache. Colored pencil, oil pastel and sometimes dried leaves or flowers are then applied.
