Art Mentoring is special relationship and I want to share with you what I’ve learned over 27 years of being a full-time artist.

I will support you in your artistic goals to create a body of work, write an artist’s statement as your compass, and say “yes” to yourself and your art. We will connect and talk about your work created in your studio, I’ll provide support, art direction, suggestions, assignments and feedback. You will bring your own unique ideas, questions and creativity to the meetings. I hope to inspire and encourage you to develop your work by challenging yourself as an artist.

I can also help you build your business, market your work by finding your audience and use social media platforms such as Instagram for promotion.

This process does several things:

  • You will create a regular studio practice
  • You will focus and evolve the work as you further explore your ideas, and
  • You will develop a consistent body of work
  • You will find your audience!
  • You will learn to market your work and make sales!
  • Online exhibition opportunities and resources

I’ll also help you:

  • Price your work
  • Set your career goals now and in the future
  • Strategize social media platforms for promotion

Artwork by Michaela Hoppe
Moving between two and three-dimensional forms, I am constructing paintings and sculpture with repetition of forms and layer by layer. There are three main bodies of work I’m creating that are nature-inspired from landscapes, seed shapes and organic forms. I am exploring the theme of nature’s cycles through photo-based paintings, circular wall installations and organic sculpture using steel wire and pleated aluminum. I am working to develop scale, geometry, spatial relationships, texture and color. These works embrace the textural properties of encaustic ((beeswax, pigment and damar resin) paintings and sculpture with translucency and dimensionality. Strong physical elements come from layering and repeating organic forms. Encaustic paint)

Taking photographs of pollinator friendly plants allows me to raise awareness about the challenges pollinators face. These works juxtapose the graphic quality of a photograph with the softness of beeswax paint. These landscape-based works combine layers of translucent wax and oil paint with the graphic quality of photos printed on tissue paper.

The circular wall art installations reference, being grounded and centered, and the geometric wholeness of the tondo shape. The attraction for me is the negative space and installing them in collaboration with a space in any configuration. The form is pure and the paintings vary in size and color elevated off the wall, creating shadow and space.

The sculptures made of pleated aluminum are organic forms created by bending and twisting individual elements to form a whole. The painted biomorphic sculptures are elevated off the wall to mimic the leaves on a tree or waves in the ocean. Depending on the color of the sculpture, the subject matter is open to interpretation. My goal in this new series of work is for a pushing-pulling, folding-opening and evolving, its parts beginning to take form into something new, connected yet still raw.
