Michelle McElroy is a native New Englander who started painting at age 14 and went on to study at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She gravitates towards creating scenes of quiet moments with strong use of light and shadow.
Often inspired by what she sees during early morning runs, midnight snacks in the kitchen or simple observations of everyday scenes, Michelle enjoys conveying the intimate feeling of having space to oneself and creating a connection of that feeling from ordinary places that are actually special moments worth contemplating.
