If you were fortunate enough to attend the Mississippi Craft Show last month, you would have been treated to the visual delights of Mixed Media Art by Chelle - Paintin’ Divas.  Mississippi Artist Michelle Ray Goolsby is originally from Jackson, Mississippi and now lives in Tupelo, Mississippi.

Michelle is a self taught Mixed Media Artist born into a creative and artistic family, she has been creating art in various forms for as long as she can remember. Michelle employs various mediums and techniques in her work and says that her favorite forms of expression are collage, paper paintings, and torn paper art.

Michelle has enjoyed painting on and off for many years, but after loosing her best friend to breast cancer, she re-dedicated herself to painting, and the sale of her art, in honor of the memory of her friend. Michelle often honors her friend in her work visually by the inclusion of wings, butterflies, birds, best friend sayings, and the like.
