Orange County California Fine Artist Michelle S. Burt is an expressive impressionist. She is passionate about enhancing your environment with art. Creating a line of single subjects that captures the eye as well as the imagination. Dancers like water, fluid and inspiring, see the movement and feel the motion.

Michelle grew up at the beaches and in the mountains of Southern California . She earned a Bachelor of Fine Art degree from California State University of Long Beach in Art with an emphasis in Interior Architecture.

For decades she loved going to the galleries and summer art Festivals in Laguna Beach. In 2012, Michelle moved to Laguna Beach California to fulfill her lifelong dream of pursuing her art.

My work is a combination of Nature and Empowerment with an emphasis on recycled metals. Making jewelry has been my passion for over twenty years and like the Raven, I love mixing style with themes of playfulness and awareness. My work is a reminder of the strength, love and joy that is within every one of us. A great day for me is sitting at my bench and making something I am proud of that I hope will delight someone. I was able to go full time as a metalsmith almost a decade ago and know every day that I have the best job I could ask for. I am never bored, my mind constantly coming up with new things to try, new directions my work can take. I have been blessed to connect with people all over the world who collect my work. Whether personal empowerment with the Clamshell line, connecting with our environment through my Honey line or Kelp Line, or the bond between the animals we share our homes with, I strive to move the world in a more positive direction, which is all we can humbly ask for.
