Artist's Bio

Michelle Bear was born in Southern Wisconsin and grew up on the farmlands and restored prairies of Northern Illinois, in that place called Middle West (or what folks here in the Northwest call “back East”.)Her family was born there.Her childhood was there.It was there for the first time she played in pastures, caught lightning bugs and discovered one of her farm cats giving birth.It is all her native language.

She received her BFA from Rockford College in Illinois and has shown her paintings in the Midwest and in the Northwest.She has lived ‘out here’ going on 16 years.It is a place that has captured her.It is here that she can play in the mountains and the sea (in the same day,) catch sight of spawning salmon and grasp the meaning of words like limited resource, ecological footprint and reinhabitation.She feels quite at home here, where she continues to expand her knowledge of the local flora and fauna and create a deeper sense of place.
