Hello, I'm Michelle, also known as @brushstrokesbymichelle on Instagram, and I am a watercolor artist and teacher from Manila, Philippines.
I started pursuing my artistic passion in 2018, as a birthday gift to myself. I did not know that I would be painting almost every single day after I attended a 3-hour workshop on basic watercolor painting techniques in March of that year. I was just so in love with watercolor!
A year after, I started teaching my watercolor painting process here on Arbington, as well as other platforms and 1-on-1 sessions. Aside from the personal mental and physical benefits I get from painting, I find fulfillment sharing my knowledge to others and helping them get a better appreciation of watercolor painting.
