Four years ago, Michelle Courier contacted me. She asked if I was looking for painters. C2C was in the planning stages of opening. I was focused on pottery. Paintings were off my radar. I looked at her website and immediately said “Wow”!.
That first summer, Michelle was a good sport. She brought several paintings to Grand Haven, spending the weekend here talking with customers about her work. Two years later, I was able to organize a show in Chicago with the Susan Fredman Design Group for Michelle, Margie Deal-Mattice, Lee Brown, Christine Towner, and Eli Zilke.
Michelle had been known for her tree/forest paintings. Today, she is known for large landscapes from all over our country. I love her urban paintings also.
Bottom line, she is a talented painter that is becoming more and more recognized in her industry. Since 2011, the price of her paintings have more than doubled. I never recommend purchasing paintings because of the pricing. You should love the work. However, if you like landscape artwork, you should consider one of her paintings. I predict they are only going to continue to increase in price.
Currently, we have three of Michelle’s paintings.
Summer Pond, 60 x 36
Fall Garden Pond, 36 x 48
