Michele C. Wayland

Since she was able to hold a pencil, Michele has created art. Creating has always been a passion throughout her lifetime, manifesting in numerous forms, from murals to miniature paintings, signs and design, pet portraits, landscapes and writing. She has created art from old barn wood and barbed wire, works in media from pencil to acrylics and enjoys being challenged by new and unique opportunities to bring someone’s vision to life. She is currently best known for her life-like pet portraits as a perfect marriage of her two favorite things: art and animals.
"I am drawn to the eyes which are known as 'the windows to the soul' and often
I will paint the eyes first and let them guide the rest of the painting.”
