Michelle Morin // United Thread
Michelle Morin, creator and maker of United Thread has long been one of our most admired artists. Her techniques, color palettes and nature inspired paintings are so naturally beautiful, vibrant, calm and connected all at the same time. We love the depth that these paintings can add to a Gallery Wall or how one oversized print can totally hold it's own on a huge wall by itself.
This woman, she is an incredible talent. In our search for more interesting bits on Michelle's Artist Life, we came across an inspiring interview from the Etsy Blog. Read below for a snippet on how she built herself a thriving career as a creator of beautifully inspiring and soulful pieces of artwork.
Interview Snippet from Etsy
"I come from a family of makers. Like a lot of artists, it was the environment I grew up in that inspired me to be creative. On weekends everyone in my family was joyfully busy with their own projects. My parents and brother each had different ways of expressing this creativity, and it generated a nice balance in the house. My dad could be found tinkering with anything from a new shed to a backyard ice skating rink, my mom and grandmother would be busy with one of their numerous projects, from building spool dolls, to sewing quilts, to canning pickles. All the while my brother studiously practiced his piano in the background. I fit into this picture anywhere and was happy to hop from one activity to the next. Over time, with the help of great teachers and talented friends, I learned how to focus this creative instinct into a more artistic career."
