Meet The Artist- Michelle Harrington2018-10-28T15:59:32+00:00

Welcome to The Wet Palette!

 

Feel free to browse the gallery and view sample pricing for custom artistry.  Specializing in pet animals and single as well as partner family portraiture in oil and pencil.  While the website comes alive with future work, be sure to Contact Me to inquire about any portraiture you would like to get started on today!

Ever since I was a child, I have wanted to become a professional artist. I took as many art classes as I could growing up. In high school, I received many awards and won cash prizes for my entries in art contests. But I didn’t dive right into becoming an artist professionally until recently.

Once I graduated from high school, I enlisted into the U.S. Navy.  I served four years in the service and got out and started college.  I received my art degree while attending The College of Coastal Georgia, where I also received the Outstanding Artist award.

Soon after I graduated, I had my son and decided to take on the role of a stay-at-home mom. But my drive to become a professional artist only got stronger. I’ve done many commissions for clients along the way, mainly portrait commissions. I have always been drawn to portraiture. I strive to capture the essence and personality of my subjects to create not only a work of art but a possible heirloom as well.

If your desire is to commission me for a portrait or any other type of art, please feel free to take a gander at my portfolio and send me a message.

Warm regards,

Michelle
