Michele Soares' Profile

About

Beijinhos!! My name is Michele Soares. I'm a Crazy Cat Lady, Etsy addict and most of all Artist. I've been a Painter, Weaver and Textile Designer for the past 14 years. I create from a place of inspiration. I'm never really sure how a painting or drawing will turn out. I also design, weave and hand dye my items this way. I try to always feel my inner knowing. This is when I'm most free.

Meet Me In Philadelphia: Indigo Girl http://meetmeinphiladelphia.blogspot.com/2013/06/indigo-girl.html



I create my pieces in my home studio. In my paintings I use yarn, acrylics, dye, inks, pens, colored pencils, fabric and paper. I recycle and reuse yarns whenever I can for my Handwoven accessories. I enjoy exploring with color, patterns and texture both in my Fine arts and Hand Woven goods . Hope you enjoy my shop! :)

Experience: (2000-2014) Woven Jacquard Designer / Textile Designer for the decorative home furnishings market

In my free time, I love to tend to my vegetable and flower garden, swim and float in the ocean, and listen to music. Most of all, however, I love to create art with my four cats in tow. They're pretty fun to have around. :) xoxo
