About MTurbideStudios

Sales 40
On Etsy since 2011

I create visual stories of the liminal spaces of my inner landscape.

In a few words, I am an intuitive artist who uses shape, line, texture, and color to excavate a visual narrative from my inner liminal world. I believe within our imaginations are collective stories which relate to the shared human experience. Stories of resiliency, love, beauty, connections, and growth with an overall theme of journey.

I am inspired by nature, ancestral history, Sacred lands, the animal realm, the Feminine Devine, the tenacious spirit of humans, and the connections between all of us.

I believe that nature holds stories and messages for us on this journey in life. As a 4th generation Vermonter I experience our home as sacred and the beauty of this state provides a special place in the inspiration of my artwork.

My process involves entering a state of liminal space and collective unconscious and excavating a visual narrative that holds the energy of the experience. My intuitive and sensory experience is the guide to where the paintings need to go. I begin with with blocks of color to ground me in the space of the piece and then I add layers of shapes and textures as I create. From there I listen for the story that wants to be told and use layers of opaque paint, transparent colors, mark making tools, and glazes to create a depth to each piece. While the work itself is abstract there are remnants and visual hints of reality in my mysterious dreamscapes

I use hand cut stencils to create shapes that frequent my paintings. I love using similar shapes of trees, birds, sheep and barns or other symbols that have ancestral meaning to me and lends itself to the narrative of the piece.

I utilize a mix of artist grade acrylic paints, acrylic mediums, inks, and various mark making tools. The painting may call for mixed media and collage at times.

Paintings are done either on canvas, wood, or artist grade paper and are varnished for long term protection.

Shop policies

PAYMENT
All orders are processed via Etsy Payments.

We happily accept payment plans and layaway for larger items and commissions. All layaways are to be paid within 6 months unless there is an agreed upon time frame. All sales are final and any deposits and payments are non-refundable if full payment is not met within the agreed upon timeframe.

THE ARTWORK
All work is created with loving intention and with fine quality products. Artwork comes unframed. Paintings on paper are usually varnished and should be noted in the description on the store page. Canvas pieces are ready for hanging. If you wish to see additional pictures before purchase, please let us know and we would be happy to accommodate.

Please note that color can vary depending on your monitor.

Artwork should be hung out of direct sunlight or extreme cold or hot temperatures. While most pieces are painted with excellent quality acrylic paint, some colors will fade over time, particularly if they are in direct sunlight. In the case of using pigment that is not as lightfast or a piece that has a digital transfer or collage element, I use a UVLS topcoat and/or varnish for extra protection. However, it should be noted particularly with digital transfers that it is unknown how long these pieces will remain 100% intact without fading. Likely they will last upwards of 100 years but over time may fade. Ultimately tests have shown that they will last 100 years without fading, but there is no guarantee that there will not be some fading over time, so their care and placement hanging will provide a longer life.

Paintings on canvas can be wiped with a clean and very slightly damp cloth when dusting. Do not use any cleaners unless recommended by a restoration specialist. Paintings on paper are most protected by professional framing in order to provide a lasting condition.

Copyright of all artwork remains with Michelle Turbide. While you purchase the original or a print of an original it does not give you the right to redistribute, duplicate, or in any way use the image for anything other than the physical possession of the artwork. If you wish to use the image for anything else, you must contact Michelle Turbide directly to discuss licensing and use agreements and purchase. You may however, sell the artwork at your discretion to another collector with the same understanding of copyright.

Works of art created by me can and will be used for marketing, cards, licensing, and prints.

In the case of commissions I will never use them for the sale of prints of the piece to honor your personal story. However, the copyright remains with me and I may use pictures of the piece for marketing and demonstration.
