paintings of the natural worldMichele Clarkson
Born in 1961 in Toronto, Ontario, Michele grew up in a small town that bears her name “Clarkson”, along the shore of Lake Ontario. She spent much of her childhood with a paint brush or a sketching pad in her hand and cannot remember a time when she wanted
to be anything other than an artist. Michele attended the Ontario College of Art where she focused her studies on painting and colour theory.

While raising her two boys and working as a graphic designer, Michele never lost her desire to paint full time. In 1997 with a body of wildlife and nature paintings behind her, and with
advise and encouragement, Michele took the leap into the world of the professional art and she has never looked back.

Michele is honoured to have been invited to exhibit in some of the most prestigious art exhibitions in Ontario, including the McMichael Gallery, The National Capital Fine Art Festival, The Archives of Ontario and The Algonquin Arts Centre in Algonquin Park. She has been able to work with Ducks Unlimited, The Buckhorn Fine Art Festival and Wildlife Habitat Canada with Environment Canada.

Michele’s realisitc style of painting and attention to detail has distinguished her work. Her ability to create a gentle and peaceful mood and to capture a moment in time has allowed her to enjoy a successful career as a wildlife and nature artist.
