Michelle Green is an expressive acrylic portrait painter implementing women and nature for its transformative healing abilities. Over the last 7 years I’ve been painting non-stop and I can’t imagine my life without holding a paintbrush since it’s become somewhat of a meditation. I started the collection “Beauty in the face of adversity” because I’m so inspired by resilient women. The idea that you can rise up in spite of adversities such as poverty, inequality, and discrimination, is the essence of my work. Since I was born in poverty and seen the discrimination first hand, I can relate with the struggles of other women who are going through it.
Art to me is a way of communicating through colors that’s inspiring, healing and transformative. It gives us purpose and allows us to get closer to our divinity connecting with the spirit and of the soul when words are not enough. When I am creating a piece, what excites me the most is that I’m drawing upon these energies that almost seem like a dance on the canvas. My movements and color placement seem to have a mind of its own which is why I think this process can be so intuitive. My paintings spark a powerful journey into the soul and mind, it’s a fabrication of one’s free will. It’s all about connection to higher parts of ourselves as well as our connection to spirit. It’s important that you fully feel the femininity and splendor of women as well as the feeling we have in nature. It’s a symbol for embracing our intuition, growth, perseverance knowing It’s in these tranquil moments of external and internal reflections that we really draw upon our spiritual essence. We have to remember We are all a part of and connected to this natural power that is full of abundance and is available when one is ready to receive it.
