Michelle Tompkins

I go into a trance and create something beautiful.

I believe I was born to create. From childhood, I was either painting, drawing, or sketching. But for the last 12 years, painting has been my passion. 

Acrylic abstracts on canvas are my preference. I find my inspiration everywhere. In nature, architecture, everyday objects, and life itself. Sometimes there’s a specific image I want to create; other times I let the feeling take me wherever it wants to go. I love using bright colors but also allow the piece itself to decide. No piece is alike. They all have their own personality and energy, which is one thing that makes my designs unique.

I was shy at first to show my work. It’s so personal. I showed my mother first, and then slowly began sharing them with close friends and co-workers. And now I’m ready to share them with you. I hope you enjoy my designs.
