Michelle Fuller - 2019 AIB TOP 20 FINALISTS

Michelle Fuller was born in Flint, Michigan and graduated with a Bachelor of Applied Arts from Central Michigan University with a concentration in drawing. She spent many years as a Textile Designer before becoming an Art Teacher in Zeeland, where she lives with her husband and two children. During the summer, Michelle sells prints of her watercolor paintings on Mackinac Island and enjoys creating art, boating and relaxing with her family in Michigan’s beautiful Northern Lower Peninsula. 

“Dancing Beneath De Zwaan” was inspired by photos taken while visiting Windmill Island, where the flowers dance in the wind to the sound of organ music playing in the background. Michelle’s playful brush strokes allow the vivid watercolor pigments to mix and mingle cheerfully throughout the landscape, capturing the feeling of Tulip Time nostalgia.
