Michelle Reilly

Michelle Reilly is an accomplished artist and native of San Diego, where most days she can be found in her studio or in her garden.  Making art and growing things are what she loves best. She shares her studio with her husband, talented painter/sculptor, Chris Reilly.  Art-making with children Ananda and Sean is a family affair at the Reilly house.  Michelle is a brilliant encaustic painter (melted bees wax and pigment on panel), and also enjoys collaborating with children and making useful art objects out of discarded items.
