"When I started painting, I was surprised to see how much happiness poured onto the canvas.
I really like to celebrate life and all its moments. I have painted about friendship, love and human issues. I also love painting animals."
"My style is so unique and many people have told me that it stands apart from other artists and you can recognize a Michele Taras right away. I think what makes my art contemporary is my use of curvy forms, imaginary characters and bright complex colour patterns."
"I remember as a child walking with my mom in art museums, looking at the paintings and commenting: "Mom, if these painters had taken a photography course, their art would be so much better."
"My mission with my Art Apparel brand was to make women understand that we are all beautiful, regardless of race, age, size, sexual preference or disability"
"I feel like I have traveled a long road of hard work to finally end up where I belong. Expect to see my paintings on the walls of big museums going forward."
