About Michele DiRocco

Michele DiRocco simply loves everything about art. Slinging paint on a canvas, designing websites, digital content, capturing moments in time, collecting art, and permanently wearing it fill her heart and make her happy. As an abstract fluid artist, she works mainly on canvas with acrylic and resin.

Her paintings are playful, energetic and layered. She contrasts pop art pastels, polka dots, drips and glitter against rich blacks and aggressive mark making to reveal an ultimate balance and control of contained chaos.
