Michele Dangelo, a Cape Cod resident, left a business career to pursue art in 1990. Primarily self-taught, she has spent little time in classes, preferring to look and experiment.
"My work is collected by many who feel that everyday objects ignite imagination and create a sense of connectivity. Because the forms are more conceptual than real they reflect the ambiguous and evoke ambivalence triggering a longing for pleasure, comfort, security and permanence - while transcending borders, cultures and socio-economic class.
"I remain challenged by the notions of free expression and a distinct hand to create work that has more to do with the viewer’s perception than my intention. " - Michele Dangelo
