“I never thought I would be an abstract artist. I have found that the catalyst for abstract art is internal. I stopped searching for subjects to paint and looked within and discovered an infinite universe.”
Artist Michelle Sakhai believes and trusts in the energy of the creative spirit as a healing force on the earth. Michelle conveys this valuable message of healing through her art and her words in this compilation of her recent body of abstract paintings. Sakhai's extensive world travels, which began at an early age, and her mixed heritage have shaped her as an artist. With both Persian and Japanese roots, Michelle's art derives influences from both cultures. Michelle Sakhai received a Bachelor of Arts degree with high honors from Hofstra University. She went on to receive her Masters in Fine Arts from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA. She has studied in Venice, Italy, and at d'Arts Plastique I Disseny in Barcelona, Spain with the School of Visual Arts. Michelle also traveled to France to study at the Marchutz Academy of Fine Art in Aix en Provence. Sakhai currently works and resides in New York City while continuing to travel the world.
