One of Michelle Curiel's first childhood memories is when she sat staring in amazement while her mother colored in one of her coloring books. The colors she used were so beautiful, the strokes so magical. She thought her mother was the best artist in the world. This is where Michelle's inspiration to become an artist began.
Michelle found a passion with designing websites. She created a Latin American community that focused on inspiring others to follow their dreams, encouraging creativity and bringing people from different cultures together. Within a year of launching the website, it received over 6,000 visits daily and also received media attention. What started out as a hobby, became her career. She has moved on from the website to pursue a career in web design. She now designs and develops websites professionally.
Michelle always kept an open eye out for the powerful gift she had always felt she had but did not know how to unlock - until the day she found Rassouli's paintings in the Agape Sanctuary in Culver City. These paintings called out to her in a way that she had never encountered. She was drawn to them not for the beautiful paintings that they were, but for the overwhelming feeling of love that she strongly felt when she looked at them. Shortly thereafter, she had an opportunity to meet Rassouli and take his "Painting from the heart" teachings.
Since then, Michelle has learned different ways to approach creating images and paintings. She has learned to remove her judgment, criticism and attachment to the end result. She has learned to add unconditional love and freedom to her works of art. She now find endless possibilities of inspiration and beauty on canvas.
