About Michelle 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 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 here: Four Corners Framing Company

Michelle studied art at Hope College in Holland, Michigan and graduated in 1990 with a degree in Art (Painting Concentration) and Art History.

She has since become an internationally collected artist and has original pieces and prints in many corporate and private collections.
