Artist's Statement:

My art celebrates our connection to Nature through the spirits of wild animals.

I believe every creature represents a spiritual truth or lesson. By observing them and listening to the messages they carry we can discover truths about ourselves, our relationships to others and our connection to the greater Cosmos.

Through my art, I hope to encourage your spirit to connect to the power and grace of the natural world.


About Me:

Here�s my story, in a nutshell:

I�ve been doing art since I was a baby. I guess it�s one of those obsessions. And once I got past the stick figure phase it was always animals. Cats, dragons, and especially horses.

I majored in art at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN and have exhibited and won awards both regionally and nationally.

Took some time (well, ok, a lot of time) off to raise kids and find myself. The animals helped a lot with both. At home we have dogs, pet rats and fish. On the spirit level, I�ve been guided by Horse, Snake, Eagle, Rat, Rabbit and most recently Vulture and Bear.

And now they�re telling me to share, so here I am. Take a look round, enjoy the paintings, and please, return the favor! I�d especially love to hear your stories of animals. What are your favorites? How have they changed your life? What have they taught you? Let me know at brightspiritart@gmail.com.


The "official" bio:

Anne Michelsen began her formal art training at the age of 12 under the tutelage of Milwaukee oil painter John Clark, and received her BA in art from St. Olaf College in 1991. She has shown her work both regionally in the Upper Midwest and in national exhibits, including an honorable mention in the Northwest Arkansas Branch of the National League of American Penwomen’s 12th Annual Women’s National Juried Art Exhibition.

Ms Michelsen's art can be viewed at the Center for the Visual Arts, Wausau WI, and at Michelsen Music, Rothschild, WI.
