L0ve365 BIO

L0ve365 is an Atlanta native, self taught, creator who has spent most of her life dabbling in all forms of art.  From Crayola markers to acrylic paints, hair, Nails, makeup, home decor, PERSONAL styling, and just making and building, working with materials.  she has always been sought after for creative input whether color CHOICES, clothing CHOICES, decor HELP, or THE LATEST music; someone always wants to know what she thinks.  She does not participate in extensive study of OTHER artists or hang out in museums and art exhibits for inspiration but simply lives and captures inspiration from everyday life AND ANALYSIS OF WHAT INSPIRED THOSE PEOPLE MORE SO THAN USING THEIR ARTWORK AS INSPIRATION.  Michelle spent her early years in the city of Atlanta on Abner place with a perfect view of the CITY skyline.  Her family later moved to the east side of Atlanta in the metropolitan areas of Decatur and Stone Mountain.  During her childhood her father worked for companies that sold glassware, paint (Glidden), & OFFICE SUPPLIES LIKE MARKERS AND PENS (Ivan Allen) which she also believes were heavy influences on her interest in working with materials, color and drawing with the over abundance markers that were always around.  She attended Redan High School, where she took her only art classes, and graduated in 1999.  Art has always been the one thing she would rather be doing no matter what else was not permitting her.  Her passion for art as a potential business was sparked again after attending a benefit for the Maynard Jackson Foundation at the High Museum of Art in September 2012.  Upon leaving the event she stumbled upon Our Gallery, a part of the Atlanta Task Force for the Homeless, at the corner of Peachtree and Pine Streets in midtown Atlanta.  After learning that 20% of proceeds from her artwork would benefit the task force she went on and completed her mission of getting a studio space there.  She notes her uncle Marion Simpson [founder of the Young Adult Guidance Center on Atlanta's west side] and her aunt victoria dowdy [a self taught, word of mouth luxury interior designer], as her first artistic role models. She once held an artistic expression session at his center for young men once per week.   The search for more creative peers, art business skills, and information regarding the protection of intellectual property led her to participate in the first League of Art Entrepreneurs course administered by art and entertainment lawyer Deborah Gonzalez and artist and art mentor Daniel Flores also known as Dan The Man [DTM].  L0ve365 Arts is currently a creative company in the works.  Michelle wants to stimulate the senses of others in several mediums and for years to come!
