Hello, my name is Michelle McCoy "Herja". I'm originally from Vienna, Austria. I moved with my family to Florida in 2012, and I love it. I love the country, I love the people, I love the culture....I love everything here! (Ok, maybe not the health care and retirement system - but that is another issue).
I studied Art Therapy in Vienna, in 2004, and enjoyed working with children, teens, and adults on several projects, in various communities. I've also organized and presented exhibitions with diverse populations: the disabled, elders in assisted lving facilities, patients in psychiatric hospitals, and those afflicted with Alzheimer's disease. It was a miracle and quite fulfilling for me to observe how people communicated their ideas and feelings creatively through art.
When we moved here, I started painting. I wanted to learn this craft because I love it! I enjoy the smell of paint, and getting "messy" with it. Painting makes me happy and I am fascinated by the creative process. I also love watching how my art evolves. It's like meditating in the zone. I hope you enjoy what you see!
