Michelle Courier, a Michigan-based turned Denver, Colorado local artist, goes on trips every year in her trusted van, Bessie. Setting off with about 40 paintings and a camera ready to capture the beautiful western United States landscape and later paint in her Studio back home. 

The daughter of an artistic family, knew from an early age she was destined for a life in the arts. As a child she spent her summers traveling across the United States, as she continues to today, with her family to visit her father's galleries. Falling in love with that life, she later followed her father's footsteps to become a professional painter. 

Courier started out painting skies and tree-scapes, but has been dabbling in painting water scenes for a few years and loves the challenges it provides.
