Michele Sires-DeLorean is a self-taught painter from Colorado. While she has been creating art in various forms since 2003, it was not until her three-year residence in New Zealand that Michele began painting on a full-time basis.
DeLorean’s original art brings abstract and representational imagery together in a harmonic dialog that suggests the will and determination of Nature.
Her work is characterized by a constellation of intense colors, conspicuous rhythms, both defined as well as loose and textured brushstrokes, often with deconstructed forms that challenge the perspective of the viewer. Whereas her Naturescapes are more representational in style, Inner Landscapes explore the human experience through more abstract elements using metaphors provided from Nature.
Inspiring Michele’s art is her belief that the creative impulse is infinite potential, the unstoppable vital force underlying the interconnectedness of all things.
In 2004 Michele was Founder and President of the Ken-Caryl Art Guild of Littleton, Colorado; and currently she serves the organization as Board Member.
In recent years DeLorean has exhibited her art in several group exhibitions including “PULSE” at Valkarie Gallery of Lakewood, Colorado and at the Colorado Gallery of the Arts 16th Annual “Kaleidoscope” exhibition, in Littleton, Colorado where she won the First Place Award. In June of 2015 she joined the creative community at 40 West Arts, a Certified Colorado Creative Arts District, with which she has exhibited in the rotating public art at the Colorado State Capitol Wonders of Nature show sponsored by Colorado Creative Industries.
In 2016 Michele participated in the Own an Original show at the Littleton Art Museum and in WOW 2016 at the CORE New Art Space in the Santa Fe Arts District of Denver.
Michele lives with her husband in Littleton, Colorado.
