MICHELLE SCHWENGLER: MENTAL HEALTH ADVOCATE, TRAVELER, COMMUNITY SUPPORTER
I am a freelance artist expressing passion and emotion. As a mental health advocate, I have been working on a Mental Health series which is currently showing at a mental health support space in Leduc, Renewed Resilience. It has been a rewarding emotional challenge to paint my trauma and mental health struggles to share.
Teaching brings me so much joy and I encourage everyone to try something new, which includes trying different colours and styles during my classes. Positivity and laughter are musts in every class!
Living in Leduc these past 11 years, I am passionate for our community and love painting wall and window murals to bring joy and emotional wellbeing in others. I am continuously advancing my styles and learning new techniques to keep my art fresh and
When I am not creating, I am enjoying my other passions of working with adults with acquired brain injuries, silversmithing, volunteering with the Leduc Arts Foundry, Block50 Leduc, GLOW & Flock Project, kayaking, biking and travel.
