My name is Michele Francoeur and I have loved beauty since I was a little girl. I have made it my life's work to create images that inspire and make you feel passion and joy. I can't wait to share them with you.....

from my heart to your home...

I have been creating since I was a child. Ever since I was little I have always loved and had an  appreciation for beauty. Whenever I saw the world's beauty my heart would soar... When I was 12 my mother gave me my first watercolor set and my heart sang.

I followed the path of creativity. I went to Parsons School of Design in NYC and become a graphic designer. It was when I had children that I came back to the path of painting. One day I took some bright pastels, and filled the paper with vibrant shapes and colors! My first abstract painting... I started painting again and even went back to graduate school to get my Masters degree in Painting-a  full circle...

Art is an incredible process: it connects, communicates and is a form of expression. It is an universal language, an apple is the same picture around the world. It resonates with our souls,  lifts us up and inspires us.

 Our environment is so important to us: it soothes us, grounds us, restores and rejuvenate us. I have always surrounded myself with beautiful art. I hope to do the same for you...

I have made it my mantra to create my work. l look inward to express emotion and outward to embrace the beauty I see in the world. Nature's silent magnitude brings joy and passion to the colors that fall from my brush.

I hope to inspire you, bring beauty and joy to your home...

Michele

 

fun facts!

I am a watercolorist at heart.... My first paintings were abstracted watercolors: florals and landscapes. I fell in love with the transparency, light and fluidty.

I have a passion for  interior design and love to compose space. I am an avid country chic person, love to paint and distress furniture. 

My husband & I lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico where we had our first child. The bright vivid colors against the earth tones imprinted on my heart...

I went to massage school during my first pregnancy and went back to painting. My first child is becoming an architect!!!

I am an Art Educator and pass on the tradition of communicating thru pictures. Visit my Art Educator's Instagram account, www.instagram/michele.francoeur for ideas for your little ones!!!
