Michelle Detering

Lansing, MI, United States

I am a painter and photographer residing in East Lansing, Michigan. I work primarily in watercolor and digital photography. I have been drawing, painting and taking photos ever since I was young. In addition to art I love to travel which greatly influences my art! I see my photography as a way to document my travels and capture moments in time that can transport a viewer to that place. With my watercolors I like to paint what I can't capture with photography. The whimsical nature, colors and abstraction of animals and the places I visit. Watercolor is traditionally a difficult medium to work with and control which is one of the reasons I like it. I enjoy the spontaneity of watercolor and working with the beautiful flow of the medium to create something that captures the essence of a place or being. It is my hope that through my art I can provide other people with the same sense of inspiration and happiness I receive from traveling and the beauty I find in the world around me!
