  • Michelle Reid – Michelle Reid Art

    Michelle seeks balance of light and shadow in her artwork. Whether her subject be deep forest or an urban streetscape, her goal is the same. How the sunlight wraps around the trunk of a tree or a sunset lights up the windows of a building can transform shapes into magic. For Michelle, light and shadow symbolize the balance of society and solitude. Michelle finds energy in the city to fuel her inspiration and is drawn to woods to decompress and reflect.

    After experiencing the joy in seeing my Grandmother's discarded, cracked tea pot in my garden every morning I knew I had to bring this happiness to others!
