Daily Epiphany Studio: MIchele Burnswww.ArtPal.com/michelelburns
I am inspired by pattern, texture and color, so I do mostly geometric or abstract art, but try to learn and branch into new areas constantly. After discovering photoluminescence I began incorporating that in much of my work- love the surprise of it: one composition by day, another by night. I make paintings and sculptures using my own recipe glow-in-the-dark, naturally photoluminescent (non-toxic, child-safe) pigments. Searched for years for the brightest, longest-glowing minerals so my “Nightlight Art” works glow all night and offer a comforting point of reference in the dark.
I am delighted by the ever-changing perspectives of art that moves, the light-bending qualities of glass and Plexiglas, the natural beauty of stones, and the rich variety of textiles, so I make mobiles from Plexiglas, wood, glass, metal, wire, stones, fabric, and sundry.
Mandalas are a very common motif in my work, and I also draw inspiration from cultures around the world and across time.
I studied art at John Herron, Indiana University, and Purdue University.
Kids love glow-in-the-dark anything, so I do some art for babies and children.
My husband and I have had a studio in the Circle City Industrial Complex since 2016- “Daily Epiphany Studio” (South Studio B17) which we open for “First Fridays,” or by appointment.
