Celebrating the American Culture
Former Army Helicopter and Airplane pilot turned artist; Michele Tabor Kimbrough has been creating art for over 25 years. Since the devastation from Hurricane Michael to her hometown and to her shop in Marianna FL, October 2018, Michele has been working as a full-time artist.
Michele's current body of work is from her travels to St. Croix during their annual Christmas parade. Her goal is to immerse herself in the American culture capturing our way of life.
Michele's training in her painting mediums (watercolors, acrylics, & oils) has been a life long journey through workshops, books, and videos by national and international artists. Even today, she attends different workshops honing her skills.
Michele maintains memberships with many art societies, art centers and museums and is the President of Southern Watercolor Society. She is also Signature Member of Georgia Watercolor Society, Kentucky Watercolor Society, Watercolor Society of Alabama, and Tallahassee Watercolor Society. Membership in these organizations provides Michele a platform of continual professional development.
I am very blessed to share my passion of creating art with you.
God Bless You and Thank You!
