About Michelle S. Burt

Painting the Dream

Michelle’s enthusiasm, passion and strength adorn each canvas. She paints from her heart, capturing the rhapsody of each fleeting moment with texture and color.

Michelle S. Burt 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. During her time at CSULB, while taking general art classes, she discovered her passion for the fine arts and her love of oil painting was born.

Throughout her career as a designer and entrepreneur, she has continued her studies with local Southern California Plein Air award winners.   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. She resides with her son, Caden and they’re enjoying the ocean from two different perspectives: he swims in it and she paints it.

Michelle works predominantly in oil, her first love.   Recently she has started to work in mixed media as well and is enjoying all the layers of found objects and mediums.   She currently has five series that she works in consistently: Seascape/Waves, Wired, Together, Abstracts and Figures.   She loves working large 48″x72″ all the way down to 3″x3″ minis.

Michelle welcomes and enjoys commission, contact her to set up a studio visits in her Laguna Beach private studio.   949-357-0297
