About Michelle

Michelle Frae Cummings is a mixed- media artist, instructor and Freelance writer. 
She lives with her husband, Brian and son Dyllan in sunny Southern California.
Michelle has always been crafty growing up as her Mother sewed and painted in oils while her Grand Mother made beautiful ceramics. She has vivid memories as early as Kindergarten regarding her art skills, dreaming up stories with illustrations to match.
In High School she won the Poseidon award for both Fine Art and Ceramics.

Michelle went on to Jr. College where she studied more painting, drawing and fashion design.

Since then, Michelle has painted sets for local play houses, created costumes, designed store front windows, taught at local scrapbook stores, public groups, and sells her art locally and online.

Michelle is a organizer and instructor of a popular Mixed Media Art Swaps and Crafting Club, which meets online for creative happenings and frequent art swaps. 
Michelle also works as a Campus Supervisor at a local Middle School during the week and on the weekend, works as Face Painter for all ages.
Michelle’s passion is color
 Whether she is painting with it, sewing, wire wrapping or planting it in her garden, she’s content.
It’s how she expresses herself.  
Creating with her fingers is therapeutic and energizing at the same time.
Michelle loves to create!
You can find her weekly in the Laguna Art Gallery at The Shops of Mission Viejo, engaging and teaching art to all ages. 
More details on her Art Workshops can be found here. 
Her mind is in constant motion. Solving problems, dreaming up new ideas, trying new things, making mistakes, making ART...and telling everyone about it!
