Visual Arts: Mixed Media; 2D Interactive Sculptural Mixed Media
Michele LeMaitre, (American, b. 1963), a multi disciplinary, award winning artist is known for her newly invented process and style of 2D Interactive Sculptural Mixed Media work, which represent chunks of water that have seemingly been scooped out of the Ocean, pools or lakes and splashed onto the walls, in a controlled but fluid form. The bold surface colors change with the movement of the viewer's body.
Michele attended Université Côte d’Azur for Arts and French Language, Mount Ida college for fashion/apparel design, as well as painting/ airbrush independent study at UNLV. Most recently, her works earned an inclusion in three different upcoming museum exhibitions; The American Society of Marine Artists 19th National Exhibition; A traveling exhibition hosted by The Albany Institute of History and Art in Albany, NY September 7, 2023 - December 31, 2023 and continued onto The Minnesota Marine Art Museum in Winona, MN, opening with a private reception on January 19, 2024 - May 12, 2024. A piece titled “A Little Chunk Of Ocean” is now in the Permanent Collection of Chateau Orquevaux, in Orquevaux, France and will be placed in their upcoming Museum.
She is a NFT Digital artist, and also an award winning Fine Art Photographer, with solo Art Installations Exhibited at Nantucket Memorial Airport.
