For over 20 years, Patricia Michaels has been producing one of a kind couture art that represents her deep ties to her Native American roots. Growing up in Santa Fe, New Mexico, she was surrounded by nature, culture and art, which greatly influences her design aesthetic. She spent much of her childhood on the Taos Pueblo where many of her family lived, including her grandparents. It was there that the environment and her elders became her education where she learned to respect and honor the process of working with her hands and heart. Dragonfly was created as a special collaboration piece for AIMEE LACALLE. Original oil on canvas painting.
