Michele Elaine Walters, has been an artist most of her life. She always knew she wanted to be an artist; even at a young age, she was making art. Originally from Gold Country in Northern California, she relocated to Wyoming in 1999. She has been teaching with the Art Association since 2003. She has taught to all ages, in all mediums. In her personal work, she portrays her surroundings incorporating surrealistic undertones as landscapes, people, and animals; sometimes representational and sometimes not. She uses symbolism to represent the reflection of her own subconscious. Some of her symbols are bold and have a blunt message, where others are vague and left to be interpreted differently by each viewer. She works in painting, printmaking, papermaking and fibers.
