Current Artist: Michelle Dyson
In Michelle Dyson's own words:
"Where Magic Plays" is inspired by Ardan Garden in Howth Dublin. I came across their photos on instagram and felt an immediate connection. The garden is overflowing with charm, sculptures and floral magic. After contacting the owners of the garden and getting permission to use their images, I couldn't stop painting. I could feel myself being transported into the garden with every color and brush stoke. Deciding what size to paint is left up to intuition. At times I needed to paint some scenes multiple times in different arrangements. When a place speaks to your artist soul, painting becomes a compulsion. I am besotted with Ardan Garden."
Michelle Dyson is a classically trained artist working in New Hampshire. She has been a public school art teacher for 30 years.
