Dear Viewer,

 

Welcome to my portfolio.  Enclosed you will find my thoughts,  happiness, hardships, love, my obsession with maze puzzles and everything in between told through a sequence of paintings, illustrations and mazes.  

 

Art is one of the few languages that can be understood and shared by people from all over the world,  bringing people together through the perspectives of artists from every walk of life, culture and background.  We are all part of the bigger picture, each a piece to the puzzle.  

 

Thank you for taking the time to visit,  I hope you will find something that speaks to you through my work,  all my very best,

Michelle Boggess

"We all have little quirks that make us unique.  Plant those quirks instead of suppressing them.  Water them.  Let them grow into big, beautiful, weird looking gardens for the world to see..."
