About Michelle Spiziri - Artist
Michelle Spiziri is a Baltimore Maryland based artist. She is a painter whose imagery is expressed in both abstract and illustration. Full of vibrant colors and imagery, she identifies her work as Emotionalism. She is also beginning to explore clay as a medium of extended expression.
Entrepreneurial at her core, she also conceptualized, developed, and ran a successful Baltimore based lifestyle management company specializing in organizing people's cluttered and hectic lives. This has only enhanced her approach to creating art. Similar in context to organizing peoples lives, Michelle believes that sometimes you have to deconstruct in order to create something fresh and meaningful.
Michelle strives to create paintings of the highest quality that are equally visually intense, mesmerizing, and thought provoking. There could exists layers of chaos before the reveal of a finished work.
Her passion for living is as intense as her use of color. Michelle finds inspiration in nature, exercise, music, and in random thoughts. Many times while on hikes or on bikes, she is struck with impromptu phrases or a capture of the natural beauty that is bucolic, chaotic, and in line with the Law of Nature.
Time in the studio is dedicated to contemplation, researching, and pushing the limits of visual expression sometimes done in silence and other times while listening to music.
