About the Artist:

 Michelle St.Laurent was born and raised in New Jersey, the oldest of  four children in a large Italian family. At a young age, Michelle was  inspired by Italian Renaissance painters Michelangelo and Leonardo da  Vinci. She began painting at the age of 6 and asked for new paint sets  and sketch books on every birthday. In the first grade she entered a  poster contest creating a painting of all the Disney characters marching  in a parade. The judges disqualified her because they could not believe  she had done the painting by herself without tracing. Her  disappointment fueled her determination to become an artist.Michelle  made it her goal to become a Disney Artist when her family moved to  Florida at the age of 16. She worked in the Magic Kingdom throughout  high school then attended the Art Institute in Ft. Lauderdale, majoring  in Advertising and Design.During college, Michelle created  artwork for night clubs and radio stations. Continuing to fill her  sketch books and grow as an artist, Michelle began working as a scenic  artist for theme parks and production companies, painting murals, show  sets and props. Later worked as a Graphic Designer for commercial  printers and a children’s book publishing company.After  gathering years of experience, Michelle was hired by Disney Design Group  where she spent ten years creating artwork for Disney’s Theme Park  Merchandise. She trained, worked, and was inspired by Disney legend  Ralph Kent. Another 5 years working with Disney’s Park Events team as  an Art Director creating large scale sets and props for all the major  park parties, festivals and press events.Michelle began painting  for the Disney Galleries in 1998 and became a true Disney artist. Over  20 years now her talent evolves with each piece.
