Michaele has both an Associate in arts and Associates in Fine Arts Degrees. She has recently completed her Bachelors in Fine Arts, at East Carolina University with a concentration in Ceramics.
Her work is about how humans change Nature. I take objects of Nature apart and rebuild her forms to better serve human needs. Humans have an innate need to custom tailor all things to their benefit, pleasure and comfort. As humans, we value life on a scale of importance according to our rules, not Nature’s rules. As an artist, I value life beyond blood and breath. I believe all things on Planet Earth carry life and understanding.
Sometimes we are not always mindful of our actions and how they carry a very different message to the ecosystems that share Earth with us. It is important to be aware of how we walk on our path. Our walk holds different meanings, different values for those who live on our path.
As our numbers increase, so does our neediness to redefine Earth’s life forms to suit our image, our needs. We expect Nature to adapt to the perfectness of us.
