Lyal Michel at Work at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Park!


Since moving to Tunbridge from the San Francisco Bay Area three years ago, artist Lyal Michel has nurtured his creative side by painting humorous portraits of Vermonters. Since arriving at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller last week as a 2015 Of Land and Local artist in residence, though, Lyal has been finding inspiration in other subjects: mushrooms.

The multimedia artist's recent work "plays with language juxtaposed against the backdrop of the natural world," as she explains in her artist statement.
