Michelle Pereira is an emerging artist based in Winnipeg, Manitoba with a degree in Industrial Design from the Florence Design Academy in Italy. Growing up in the Caribbean, before moving to Winnipeg at age 14, instilled a love and appreciation for nature that directly influences her vibrant palette.
While living in Vancouver Pereira studied 3D Design at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. It was this time spent on the West Cost that inspired her to capture the beauty of land and water with a paintbrush. In Summer 2021, she exhibited a collection of Clear Lake themed paintings in the retail portion of Wasagaming Community Arts.
Working in acrylics on panel and canvas, Pereira creates cheery still life and landscape paintings that are soaked in sunlight and splashed with citrus. Her miniature and medium-sized works invite us to sip a refreshing mojito and beckon us to dip our toes in sparkling waters!
Save The Date: Michelle Pereira’s first exhibition SAP: Sun-Kissed opens Saturday May 28th! Artist Reception 1:00 to 4:00 pm.
