 Hi, I'm Michelle!


I'm drawn to anything unique, and I find solace in art, which is how The Swanky Blackbird came to be.
Self-taught, I began painting with water color in 2013, moved to canvas and since have broadened my horizon to painting on furniture. At my work station you will find professional acrylics, custom chalk paints, gorgeous stains and numerous texture mediums.
As a Stay-At-Home Mom, I needed a creative outlet, so I turned my garage into a studio and I’ve been creating for clients ever since! I‘d love to speak with you about custom Art for your space.


My Inspiration

Living on the South East Coast, surrounded by gorgeous oceanic blues and tall green trees, I find my inspiration in nature. The vivid colors of sunsets can also be found through-out my work.

 Always a full color palette, I like to use non-trending schemes and layers. I believe a bold piece of art or furniture in a room can change the entire dynamic, and change your entire day.
