Michele Olinde

I am a mixed media artist based out of West Monroe, Louisiana. I attended Northeast Louisiana University majoring in advertising design and specializing in illustration/drawing. Shortly after graduating as a fine arts major, I returned to N.L.U. receiving my master's in education and a minor in history. Later in my teaching career, I presented my portfolio to the state department and received talented art certification. This course became my main focus. Most people refer to me as primarily an art educator but that is only a small part of who I really am. I recently retired from teaching in the public education system. I am looking for new opportunities for my artistic efforts.
