All of my art work is available in Limited Edition Print. The beauty of a print is that you can choose from various sizes and prices and get the same beautiful image. Each of my Limited Edition prints are hand signed and numbered and come with a certificate of authenticity.

CUSTOM ART COMMISSIONS

Enjoy the experience of having a custom painting by Michelle Vella. In this commission of Dolly Parton, my client requested that I base it on Dolly's portrait by Andy Warhol. Coincidentally, I appear painting her in the first few minutes of "The Andy Warhol Diaries" Ep.1 on Netflix. Collectors find it to be the most personal art piece that they own, especially because they were part of the process giving them a work of art that they will enjoy for years to come.

TESTIMONIALS

My husband and I arrived back home today and the two art pieces are here. We LOVE them! The framing is beautiful and they look amazing. We absolutely love your work. I wish I could put it up on so many other walls. It was hard to pick just 2. Thank you so much for taking care of the framing. We really appreciate it and look forward to enjoying your work for years to come. Ellen Levine | Toronto, ON

I had the very good fortune of discovering Michelle Vella when she appeared on the Marilyn Denis Show several years ago and instantly fell in love with her amazing work. I live on the other side of the country, and yet Michelle and I have formed a friendship through her art. I am an avid collector of her work, and the proud owner of 4 original paintings, 3 of which I commissioned, plus eight Limited Edition Prints. Her work is nostalgic, retro, current and so fun all at the same time, adding that magic to my decor. Michelle is a pleasure to work with, her dedication and attention to detail from first brush stroke to shipping is impeccable. I highly recommend Michelle not only as a talented artist but as a caring and trustworthy business owner as well. Hilary Jordan, Victoria BC.

Michelle Vella is an amazingly talented artist and a true professional. I instantly fell in love with her work at an art show and hired her for a private commission. She was extremely reliable and dedicated with an end result that far exceeded my expectations. I have since added to my Michelle Vella collection. Michelle’s work is remarkable and distinctive and continues to bring me a lot of joy and frequent compliments. I look forward to her continued creations and my next purchase! ~ Krista L.

“We commissioned Michelle for a painting of our new boathouse in Muskoka. Michelle was a delight to work with, very professional, easy to work with and incredibly creative. It was overall a wonderful experience.  The result was an amazing work of art that uniquely captured a very special moment and place in our lives!  We absolutely love it! Thanks Michelle for a beautiful painting which we proudly hang in our home.” Cheryl and Gary Lake Joseph, Muskoka, Canada

Working with Michelle was lots of fun and we were thrilled with end result! Michelle worked from several photos and really listened to what was important be included and represented in the piece, from our black lab’s red collar, to the detail in my favorite scarf and the flower boxes on the dock which were made by my husband’s parents. We cherish the special summer memory that she so beautifully captured and I’m already dreaming of a winter portrait! Michelle Doig Toronto, ON

“I fell in love with Michelle’s artwork on Instagram. I was drawn to the joyfulness and vivid colors of her pop art style with its clean lines and brilliant composition that captures the details and nuances of her subjects.  I commissioned Michelle to create a portrait with her fabulous Wide Big Eyes style that would capture my “happy place”, the beach. Working with her was an absolute delight. Michelle’s professional but casual approach made the entire process effortless and exciting for me. The beach portrait brings joy and sunshine into our home every day, and we absolutely love it. Thank-you Michelle!” ~ Narda Ellesmere, King City, ON, Canada

In rare moments in our life time you meet a person who evokes a smile from out of nowhere - like a memory from playing with childhood friends. Michelle shares her love of life with everyone she meets. Michelle’s creativity is magical. Michelle captured a subject within moments and in my case, the Princess of Thailand and ‘translated’ her inner beauty for the cover of Harper’s BAZAAR Thailand. Michelle’s philanthropic endeavours knows no boundaries. Michelle understood the importance of the China Fashion Gala bringing together a diverse community of fashion icons, international influencers, business leaders and celebrities to recognize outstanding contributions to Chinese design and innovation and to support the next generation of designers and leaders. Michelle’s donation of her work was auctioned within seconds. She has now made another person smile - with today’s times, we so need to smile.
