About Michelle L. Calkins

'Express your ability sincerely and that is art.'

In my work I emphasize quality, integrity and spontaneity. Since childhood I have found solace in the creation of art. It is my gift and I try not to waste it. My influences are Edward Hopper, Andy Goldsworthy, ants, snails, and people who paint things on the head of a pin. I am especially impressed with artists who create impermanent art, like sand painters or a musician who creates a unique piece of art each time he sings a song. It exists for that moment and then it is gone again. My media of choice are oil painting, sculpture and photography. For me, the three disciplines borrow from each other making each one stronger!

Having been a professional picture framer since 1990, the presentation aspect of the art world is always on my mind. It is amazing what a great frame can do. Co-owning Four Corners Framing Company in Holland, Michigan since 1999 has afforded me a front row seat to many types and styles of art. It has been a great and constant inspiration and keeps me on my art toes. You can visit my frameshop's website at www.fourcornersframingco.com.
