About Michelle Orcutt Arkley
How I Art is a business I started for my paintings and art prints. I get motivation from the beauty of nature’s creatures. I enjoy adding a unique perspective of whimsy to many of my creations. I enjoy using bright and bold colors. I do custom pet portraits, each uniquely hand-painted to look like someone’s cherished pet.
I am an artist in Boone County, WV. I enjoy being creative and expressing myself through art. Currently I enjoy painting with acrylics. My paintings range from realistic to whimsical. I have always been an artistic person but it took me a long time to be comfortable sharing my creations with others. I often find inspiration in animals, nature and my own pets. I also enjoy dabbling in the unexpected and unusual. I am hoping to continue to gain confidence in my work and build upon my artistic skills.
