Michelle Dickson, Art House’s Artist in Residence

Michelle Dickson is our current artist in residence, and we’re really excited about her upcoming show! She’s been working really hard in our gallery this month, and will be showing her finished pieces in the May ArtStroll. As an artist in residence, she’s in the galley 24/7; She literally sleeps in the loft above Steven and Shane’s desks! We’re very happy to have her here, and hope everyone can make it to her show on the 22nd of May.
