Biography from City of Ventura Municipal Art Collection:
Mary Michel worked in several mediums, but is best known for her oil and acrylic paintings and serigraph prints. Concerned with revealing the essence of natural forms, Michel used a technical style permeated by bold flat color abstractions and balanced by curvilinear forms.

"Usually one thing about a particular flower will move me to work with a composition," stated Michel. "The moth orchid has that cascading quality, or the poppies have that translucency; I am not as interested in getting the detail of the flower as in getting what I feel is its essence."

For twenty years, Michel was a fine arts instructor at Ventura College. In addition, Michel was an invaluable asset to the Ventura community donating her art works and prints to innumerable non-profit organizations for fundraising purposes. Paintings and prints by Michel have been widely exhibited and can be found in institutional and private collections including the Thousand Oaks Municipal Collection and the Ventura County Museum of History and Art.
