Artist in Residence – Michele Kishita

Michele Kishita is a Philadelphia-based artist who searches for the landscape that inherently exists in of each of her wooden painting surfaces, while expressing the visual contrast and harmony where man-made structures and nature intersect. She is influenced by the compressed space of Japanese ukiyo-e prints and Hokusai and Hiroshige’s depictions of water. Kishita’s work is in several corporate collections including Toyota, Capital One, and Kaiser Permanente. Her work can be viewed online at: www.michelekishita.com
