Michele Kortbawi-Wilk
(b.1961) Somerset, New Jersey

     Michele Kortbawi-Wilk is a self-taught artist, apart from art classes during her early school years, who began drawing and painting when she was very young.  Her love for art is equally shared with a love for all animals.  In her young adulthood, Michele’s passion for animals landed her a job in Southern California working with animals for the motion picture industry.

     Her practice in painting was informed first and foremost whilst working alongside exotic, native and domestic animals in the film industry,  Michele continued to paint for pleasure while at the same time attracting the attention of famed Hollywood animal trainers such as Frank Inn (owner and trainer of “Benji”) and Cindy Cullen (daughter of Edgar Rice Boroughs).  She found herself with regular commissions and began painting fulltime.

     In considering each subject, Michele looks for expression, personality and character and it is for her of most importance to capture this essence of spirit in all of her works. She is influenced by many animal sculptors and painters of modern day, surrealist movement, as well as the Old Masters.

     For more than 25 years Michele's work has been showcased in juried shows throughout the U.S. and abroad with many awards to attest to her success. Her paintings can be found in private and corporate collections. Commercial works include Enesco, Otagiri as well as several environmental groups.

Jones & Terwilliger Galleries proudly represent Michele Kortbawi--Wilk on the West-Coast.
