Michelle Devereux is a 29-year-old, Dallas, Texas native whose artwork blends elements of surrealism, bohemian swagger, and comedy to create a unique aesthetic entirely her own.

Michelle Devereux earned a B.A. in studio art from Bard College in New York, and her traditional training is evident in her detailed artwork. "[My current work] Focuses on themes of innocent fantasy," she said in her artist statement. "And finding beauty in the obvious and the embarrassing."

Looking through her art, it's clear that she has mastered this element of mixed media creations. My favorite image in the Michelle Devereux collection features a gold-chain wearing hipster, decked out in all black, surfing a pepperoni pizza, his face contorted in a smug (but stylish) expression. The image does a great job of representing the unique aesthetic that will hopefully become a Michelle Devereux trademark.
