Commercial Commissions

Michelle's commerical art expertise is creating history based imagery. Every image is painstakingly researched including costume, location, props, architecture, etc. Every detail is important. If the illustration includes a road, would the road in the specific time and place be paved? If so, with what? Brick? Gravel? Michelle's attention to detail, combined with her realist impressionist painting quality brings history to life. She captures the eye and the heart of the viewer, resulting in increased sales of your product.
