Hello and welcome to my website! I am Michelle Hutchinson a Canadian abstract floral artist drawing my inspiration from the natural beauty of my rural surroundings outside my studio. I use a vibrant palette to showcase themes of hope and joy using nature motifs. I infuse vitality, energy, and spontaneity into each artwork to resonate with the viewers’ heart and soul.
I am a self-taught artist who learned much from painting with my family; Rene O'Connor and Danielle O'Connor Akiyama.
"My art reflects my combined love of mystery and beauty - the perfect combo of quirky meets joy!" explains Michelle.
Now retired, I am delighted to have more time to paint in my studio and to present art workshops.
This year there's something new on my horizon! I'm working with other local creatives to introduce the L&A Studio Tour into our cultural landscape Sept 9 & 10, 2023!
Thanks for stopping by my site!

What makes “original” art exciting?
Thriving by Pivoting Digitally
What I'm Learning from Painting in a Series
Each painting is an "original" work of art made with a variety of mixed media materials including fluid acrylics, graphite sticks, inks, crayons, glitter, collage, pens, and whatever else excites me!
All my art is inspired by the nature I see outside my studio - the lake, trees, flowers, birds, and mostly by the wind that makes everything dance!
I love to try out different colour combinations, textures, and processes. And, I'm a big fan of multiple layers of both opaque and transparents paint!
