Meet Michelle Katz!

ORA is so pleased to welcome Michelle to our guild. Bright, enthusiastic, and dedicated to her art, she is a wonderful addition to our group!

Michelle Katz, an artist and art educator has had formal training in a variety of art media. She has a B.A. in Art History and M.A. in Art Education. Michelle has continued to paint off and on since her college years, settling on acrylic as her preferred paint. 
Michelle is inspired by artists such as Gustav Klimt, Henri Matisse, and Chuck Close whose influence can be seen in her work. Her bold, free-form shapes and the energy in her paintings represent her inner free-spirit that she does not often show.

“My goal is for the audience to discover something new with each view. I encourage you to choose a section, take in the complexity of layers, and feel the kinetic energy.”
