Artist Spotlight: Michelle Armas

I couldn’t be more excited or honored to announce Stripes & Sequins’ first regular contributor.  It was an easy choice… (I mean, who could I trust more than my very own (very talented) sister, Becca Atwood!?)  She started her blog just a few months ago in January, but has already managed to make quite a splash in the blogging world… tracking down artists and designers that I’ve never even heard of!  Read on for her first artist spotlight, and be sure to stop by her blog, (extra)ordinary wonders.  It truly is… extraordinary!  I’ll let her take it from here… in the meantime, you can look forward to her posts every Tuesday afternoon.

Many of you may know Michelle Armas, as her beautiful paintings are pretty lust-worthy.  She is a very talented artist from Atlanta, known for her abstract acrylic paintings.  She is a Taurus, a history buff, and a sci fi geek.  Her blog is fantastic if you haven’t checked it out before.  Her friendly personality comes through loud and clear.  She was kind enough to answer a few questions about herself… so be sure to read the full post after the jump.
