Michelle Morrell has been painting and printing in southeast Alaska for over twenty years. Arriving first in Ketchikan with a very small child and with oil paints, she switched to watercolor and acrylic and began producing relief prints. In 1997 she began painting and building ceramic pieces.
The life forms and scenery of Southeast Alaska are her chief subjects, although she particularly enjoys drawing and painting children. Michelle and her husband, John, live in Juneau, Alaska where presently they both work for the US Forest Service. They have a daughter and together the family enjoys boating and fishing in Southeast, Alaska.
