Michele YellinFor me, paint­ing is a metaphor for life. Much of the process—like much of living—is about joy and beau­ty and sto­ry. But it is also about not being too attached to things, and know­ing that let­ting go of one thing cre­ates a place for some­thing new.

Pri­mar­i­ly I work in acrylics and ink and water col­or. Along with using dif­fer­ent medi­ums, I take two dif­fer­ent approach­es depend­ing on my mood. Some paint­ings are care­ful­ly planned while oth­er paint­ings evolve organ­i­cal­ly. Tex­ture and col­or sug­gest shapes and spaces, much like cloud watch­ing. I paint the things I imag­ine that I see. Through this process, the paint­ing begins to tell a sto­ry. The sto­ries seem famil­iar yet strange and dream­like.

I live in down­town Cary with the love of my life, Mike Yellin, our two sons, two cats, two guinea pigs and a beau­ti­ful north fac­ing stu­dio where I spend many hap­py hours cre­at­ing art.
