Michelle L Purvis
A mixed media and watercolor artist, Purvis has been involved in the Portland area art scene since 2005. In her recent work, she strives to depict the natural world with fluidity, and allows her love of traveling to play central role in her paintings. She finds that being a spectator to the artistic community, and being part of that same audience helps her to find inspirations, and make connections to her own work. Purvis also firmly believes that making art is about finding true solidarity with oneself.
