Michelle Constantine (previously Wiarda)
Artist and Photographer
I was born and raised in Massachusetts, the north shore area. I began developing my artistic skills at an early age. I drew and painted images of horses, seacapes and landscapes. Nature intrigued me then, as it does now.
I earned my degree from Endicott College in Beverly, Massachusetts, where I studied commercial art, as well as painting, drawing and photography. I was fortunate to live in such an inspiring, lovely coastal area. Its a real artist's paradise. After much practice, I've developed my style of watercolor technique from which I have created many seascape, landscape and architectural images.
I live on Cape Cod and I am always attracted to the amazing vistas, historic homes, and abundant wildlife that have become my subjects for both watercolor paintings and photographs. I lived in Delray Beach, Florida and found so much beauty in its island like character. Delray has everything from colorful beach cottages to stunning flora. I was inspired to capture their natural beauty in watercolor.
My watercolor paintings and fine art photographs are my way of sharing the beauty I experience, with you.
I have made a living as a commercial artist, graphic designer, watercolorist, painter, and photographer. In addition to the commercial side of my career, I've spent many hours shooting landscape photographs, and painting the subjects in nature I so love.
My original watercolor paintings, prints and fine art photographs can be found in private and corporate collections throughout the world. Many thanks to Fine Art America.
