Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Michaela Groeblacher

Born and raised in Austria/ Europe, Michaela worked as a physical therapist for ten years, before her family emigrated to the USA in 1989.

In 1995, living in the Pacific Northwest, she received a degree in landscape design, that let her combine her love for art and nature in her work. The first five years she exclusively designed gardens and landscapes, about two hundred of them. Her most notable accomplishment during that time was the win of a design contest for a prominent public garden at the Center for Urban Horticulture at the University of Washington, the Soest Garden.

In 2000, when moving to Kansas gave her the chance to concentrate on a relationship with the soil in a different way, she began working as a ceramic sculptor, influenced by the wide open spaces and the closeness to the land and the earth. As a result, she very early on was invited to join a group of McPherson artists, The Gallery, and started showing and selling her work in galleries area wide.

Michaela then received a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from McPherson College in 2005. During art classes her childhood love for painting returned. She started dividing her time between creating from clay and acrylic painting, eventually combining the two media and her experience as a therapist in her ‘clay people’

She has exhibited in numerous galleries throughout Kansas in group, solo and juried shows. Her work is part of multiple private and corporate collections throughout the USA, Austria and Germany.
