celldivblue1 Featured Maker: Michele Banks

Washington, DC artist Michele Banks, aka Artologica, is a painter who, in her own words, “uses an old and often-disrespected medium, watercolor, to create pieces that are anything but old-fashioned.” Many of her works focus on biological and medical themes, particularly the microscopy of living cells. Shown above is Cell Division Blue 1 a 12 x 9″ canvas executing using a special “wet-on-wet” painting technique. Michele sells originals only and does not make prints.

Michele herself says:

I live in beautiful Washington, DC, with my husband, daughter and cat. I participate in a lot of art festivals and shows around the DC area, and I’m also deeply involved with a great organization called Artomatic, which puts on gigantic art shows in empty buildings.
