ARTIST PROFILE

Michelle Vandyk

Bio

Michelle Vandyk has been passionate about light, shadows, colours, and the relationships between God and man and our co-creation for as long as she can remember. Her mixed-media art reflects her belief that life is layered, textured, relational and meaningful. Many years ago Michelle received her BFA from Calvin University. After 16 years of teaching Middle and High School Art, she is adding a new dimension to her art practice by studying Art Therapy. Blessed to share her passion for many forms of visual art Michelle teaches adult/teen workshops, volunteers, and facilitates visual expression and healing through art. She strives to follow God’s leading in her life, but fails regularly. Jesus’ mercy and grace is what sustains her through life’s ups and downs. Professionally Michelle exhibits her art regularly and her work is found in art collections in Europe, North America and Japan. An intern at her church, Michelle is excited to be creating and facilitating art as worship this year. She is a member of CIVA, the Federation of Canadian Artists, and the BC Art Therapy Association.
