.Michele Morehouse
Michele Morehouse is a ceramic artist and painter who divides her time between residences in Bodega, California and the small fishing village of Melaque, Mexico. Her love of the natural beauty of the windswept hills and coastline of western Sonoma County with it's abundance of swallows, hummingbirds, sparrows and other wildlife has given her subject matter a sense of alchemy and spirituality
 archetypes of interconnectness, expectations and fortune are explored.  
Living in Mexico since 1986 has made it's own mark on Michele's imagery.  A playful sense of vibrant color and the Mexican concept of "La Fortuna" are celebrated in the images of her paintings, drawings and  ceramic candleabras.  



Hands are a universal symbol of faith, healing and protection.  "Good Luck" and "Home Is" (above and below)  were inspired by African tribal stools.  These garden sculptures reflect the alchemy and sense of spirit found in the functional world of African art.
