I've been a singer/songwriter and musician for 35+ years, but when I began painting a few years ago, everything changed.
Who would have ever thought a paintbrush would have led me here - certainly not me!
Painting has become one of my biggest teachers and greatest tools for self-discovery. When I ventured into painting my songs (see the "Song Series" for full story), I couldn't have imagined it would have led to publishing my first book, releasing a full album of original songs, and becoming a certified coach!
All of this has come about due to a deep desire to heal my own personal trauma.
By combining my professional training as a teacher, and now as a coach, with my creative ability, I offer an enriched and unique learning experiences through my programs.
Using a combination of creative exploration activities with mindset and energetics training, clients uncover what they really desire for their lives and develop a plan to achieve it.
Before I could teach any of this, I had to walk the road myself. I had to find the light in my own darkness - now I teach others how to do the same so they can also create the life they wish and live to their fullest and greatest potential.
My purpose as an artist, author and coach is to help you transition from one place to another.
By sharing my stories through creative expressions, events and programs, I hope to inspire YOU to believe in yourself - to fully believe YOU can overcome any adversity past or present.
Through my work I hope to help you witness your own potential - to fully understand all that is possible for your life. My goal is for you to not just grasp it, but to LIVE it.
We spend way too much of our lives living for others - trying to live up to so-called expectations we have imposed on ourselves because we believe that's what we're supposed to do to achieve happiness....... and you know what, life is too damn short to live it this way - unfulfilled.
My intention is to guide YOU back to your own capacity for happiness, love, and success. I want YOU to feel inspired about your own life, and to see that you can turn what looks like obstacles into opportunities for a new way of living.
I want you to experience the truth of who YOU are and be inspired to pursue your dreams with courage, confidence and certainty.
When you get that, I mean really get that, then you'll not only understand that you're made for abundance and prosperity, instead of fear and doubt..... but you'll know exactly how to go after what you truly want.
When creating anything - art, music, writing, programs; etc, I seek to find an opening for emotional resolution. I look for different perspectives and try to find ways to use them to evoke a different response.
No matter what medium I use, I seek to discover a lesson from the personal experiences that have shaped who I am and who I'm becoming. I ask my intuition to guide me (and it always does).... but unlike past days, I've learned how to listen better and trust it more.
Even though our circumstances may be different, as a species we all experience life from a similar emotional plane. It is these shared emotions that make everything relatable and meaningful.
Everything I create is rooted in the philosophy that we already have all we need to create a life of happiness if we just believe in ourselves, shut down the self-sabotaging thoughts and trust that we can choose a different way to live........ and be okay.......more than okay!
Life is short, precious and sweet.... but it takes getting out of our own way!

"I purchased the Stepping Stones Album/Book bundle & it truly is amazing. I decided not to listen to any of the songs in advance but instead played each one as I followed along in that specific section of the book. I highly recommend doing this as it really connects you to what Michelle is experiencing at that point in time. Reading how the song came to be & then listening to her sing it as I followed along to the words it really gave me a clearer perspective." ~ Lisa St. Croix
"I thoroughly enjoyed Michelle’s honest and heartbreaking story. She also speaks of resiliency, hope and recovery. I was touched by how she describes the great loves in her life. Great read!" ~ Debbie Curtis
"An incredible story of tragedy and loss, coupled with triumph over self doubt. Michelle takes you on a very honest, and emotional journey, detailing the darkness that gripped her life for so many years and how she rose above it all. An intertwining of personal stories, and words of wisdom and inspiration - a must read!" ~ Sherri Leighton
"Michelle shares her story as if we were sitting with a cup of tea and hearing it from deep within the walls of the home she grew up in. I cried at her deep losses and laughed at her sharp "Southern Shore" wit and and her ability to still find humour in tricky situations! It was so touching to see how Michelle navigated through those stepping stones to get to see the beauty and possibilities of this life despite the heartbreak and the hurdles.Her story is truly inspirational. Do yourself a favor and order a copy." ~ Judy Squires
"Michelle, I was beyond excited looking through your website. Whilst it's been years since I have seen you, I can see those years in your work. The pieces speak for themselves, but they also speak to you. I love the abstracts. The mood they evoke is one of excitement and anticipation. Your choice of color is a total representation of the abundance of light you have witnessed throughout your many travels. You have shown up on this new road as an old soul with centuries of experience that is reaching out from the canvas and drawing us in. It is as clear as water that you have arrived. You are happy and you are loved. I was taken in today as I looked at your work. It has been years since something has awakened me to that degree. Bravo."
~ Sharon Sinnott
"I have been waiting in anticipation for my paintings to arrive. After you dropped them off today and I unveiled them, they are even more beautiful in "person"! The textures! I love love love them! Keep up the great work."
~ Margaret Ann McCarthy
"Michelle's art inspires me. Her art demonstrates for me the wisdom of the observation by James Baldwin that the purpose of art is to lay bare the questions which have been hidden by the answers. That is why her work is on my walls and will stay there forever."
~ Noel Daley
