Too free to be caged by any mind..

Michele Bramlett

“I have a desire to communicate to others the beauty of our world, the hope for oneness, the promise of love, and the joy of Spirit.  I know as Human Beings we have a huge responsibility.  We have been appointed keepers of Earth and all It’s inhabitants, and I believe from Aboriginal cultures and the sweet song of Spirit we can learn to live in balance”

Born in Ventura, California, Michele Bramlett has been painting for as long as she can remember.  Having grown up in a very talented family, Michele’s art comes naturally to her.  Michele is the eldest daughter of Delaney Bramlett of Delaney & Bonnie and Friends, a soul powered rock & roll group in the late 60′s- early 70′s and Patty Stanley, an amazing wood carver/folk artist.  She is the sister of Bekka Bramlett and the cousin of Johnny Smith, both incredible vocalists/songwriters/musicians.

Michele is a painter of people.  Her paintings show the beauty, spirituality, and simplicity of the culture of the Human Being while stimulating the senses in a sensual way.  Brilliantly colored canvasses and subtle symbolism conveying messages of peace, love, oneness, and spirituality of the Human spirit are strongly influenced by her own Native American culture.

This third generation born Cherokee (Tsalagi) began showing her work in the summer of 1994 and participated in many group and solo exhibitions in southern California, New Mexico, and New York.

Michele’s work has been published in Fine Art Magazine several times.
She has recently Illustrated 2 books – “The long way ’round” by Victor Forbes, and 7 Priceless Prescriptions for Health and Anti Aging” by Dr. Bill Akpinar.

“When I was a little girl, I used to “play” in my drawings.  I was told, ever since I can remember, that I was a “very talented artist” .  I know it was because my family loved me so much and knew that I loved to draw. I believed them, and I never stopped creating.  I would draw all of my friends, furry and not, and we would have the biggest time you could ever imagine…
It’s amazing what we are capable of when we are loved, encouraged, and allowed to feel free.
I want to thank my family and friends for loving my art and being forever supportive.
Thank you for believing in me.”

Love, Michele
