Michelle Wolff paints stunning custom portraits of pets and wild animals. She became fascinated by the challenge of capturing the essence of an animal through charcoal, graphite, pastel and some home made watercolors, which she makes from coffee, tea and onion skins. Eyes are her absolute favorite. She spends a lot of time  trying to tune in and really grasp the emotional tone of the subject.

She is a freelance illustrator and fashion accessory designer. Working in fashion drove her to create through questions. How could emotion be expressed with color?
