Michele Tabor's art reflects her concerns about and observations of society. Whether a person is simply doing something or as a statement about "being" in a wider sense.
Michele's work is figurative and portrays, generally speaking a single figure allowing her to concentrate on the individual whereby the existential position of the portrayed person becomes the central concern. Her work is always inspired by a particular person, place or experience. She both draws and paints using a variety of media.
