Awaken your creativity and reclaim the beauty of the Soul through Art.
Finding the freedom to express, through painting, music, singing, dancing or writing will unlock the joy, magic and wonder of the soul.”
Michelle Pfeiffer, was born in Toronto, where she was trained as a graphic designer at Humber College School of Design. For many years Michelle worked in Advertising before returning to the Ontario College of Art in 1989 to study Fine Art.
Michelle works in mixed media, acrylic paint, collage, printmaking and sculpture, often using found objects from nature. Her art explores feelings, values and personal truth as a way of connecting from the head to the heart.
Among Michelle’s accomplishments is the creation of colourful and uplifting banners for the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual Organisation, Van City Place for Youth and Green Grass Productions, a fundraiser for street kids. Her illustrations and paintings can be found on books, and cd covers and in magazines. Her exclusive line of angel cards are sold in Toronto, New York and Europe.
Michelle’s one- artist show, “I was a Bird in a cage and you gave me the sky” at the Idee Gallery was celebrated in Toronto. She has also taught meditation and exercises in creativity to women at the North York Women’s Shelter, facilitated workshops for artists’ block, and has taught creative workshops for various community groups and school projects in Toronto and Vancouver.
Michelle has combined her meditation practice with 20 years of visual art experience and discovered the joy and wonder of self-expression and created Art With Heart creative workshops. More than ever, she is inspired by the creative process and wishes to share her art and the process for healing with others.
In 2003, Michelle once again travelled extensively through parts of India, England, and even her native Canada, finding new inspiration for her work.
In 2012, Michelle has just returned from another wonderful 6 week trip visiting the head quarters of the Brahma Kumaris in Mt. Abu India.
While there she was inspired to paint an uplifting mural in a local hospital, and she painted a mural for a meditation retreat for 300 guests visiting from Middle East.
Michelle continues to offer her one of kind Divine child intuitive readings, hand painted tee shirts, murals and workshops.
