Michelle Brunner is a high school art teacher and daily painter in historic Perrysburg, Ohio. Growing up she spent summers on the Lake Erie Islands and along the sandy shores of Lake Michigan. She fell in love with the waves, islands and carefree life along the lake. That feeling of being on the water carried over into her paintings. Michelle's paintings reflect life on the islands. Hollyhocks along the lake, hydrangeas in front of adorable cottages and sailboats racing across the lake. She paints these scenes in an impressionistic style using acrylic paint to amplify these restful landscapes.
