Michelle Bear

Michelle Bear was born in Wisconsin and grew up on the farmlands and restored prairies of Northern Illinois. She received her BFA from Rockford College in Illinois and has shown her work in the Midwest and Washington. She feels quite at home in Washington State where she continues to expand her knowledge of the local flora and fauna and create a deeper sense of place. And when not painting, you will find her at Edmonds Bookshop, enveloped in books she loves to sell as Assistant Manager.
