I'm an artist, Michelle Nosco, in residence at the WAV of Ventura, California. I've shown my artwork (paintings, sculpture, weavings and murals) from childhood. Here's a 3D Virtual WAV Gallery Exhibit of my charcoal figure drawings: http://www.panomatics360.com/virtualtour/michellenosco/
At five I studied art in the Detroit Museum of Art, high school took me to Wayne State University and the Cranbrook School of Art. In college as an undergrad I got a BFA (Bachelor of Fine Art) at the University of Michigan and later a Masters in Directing Theatre, Television and Film at CalARTs (California Institute of the Arts).
Entering the work world as an art director, producer and film director for many years I transitioned to become a professional artist -- painting over 100 murals throughout Southern California.
In 2007 I founded the Arts For Earth Foundation in California and since then have painted expressionistic and impressionistic works including California landscapes and native wildlife for environmental purposes. In addition, I've been commissioned to paint pet portraits for fundraising to benefit wildlife sanctuaries and wilderness reclamation projects.
