This spring I took a drive down to Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania where I was inspired by the many beautiful spring blooms. In the conservatory I found this gem. There's nothing quite as beautiful as nature in all it's colorful, splendid glory. I strive to capture it's delicate boldness.

Michelle is a Philadelphia based contemporary realist watercolor painter. She was drawn toward art at an early age, taking on the challenge of reproducing magazine photographs and other existing works of art throughout her childhood. Now, her primary source of inspiration comes from her own photographs, focusing on the colors and textures of the world around her. She is also exploring the human experience and the complexity of our emotions through form and figure. Her art is characterized by fine details and vivid colors that blend together to capture the often subtle realism of her subjects. Ms. Sheppard studied graphic design at Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia and advertising at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh and enjoys a successful career in the advertising industry. Her background in graphic design and creative direction has honed her eye for composition, focus, light and color. She is an associate member of the Philadelphia Watercolor Society.
