The Art of Michelle Vella
Michelle Vella is a contemporary portrait artist known for her unique Big Eyes. The NY fashion scene quickly embraced Michelle’s style from the start. Fashion icon Diane von Furstenberg discovered Vella on Instagram resulting in a meeting in NYC and delivery of her custom portrait which is now part of the DVF collection. Vella has garnered commissions and collaborations with high fashion magazines, fashion designers, corporate and private collectors. Having an education in Fine Arts and a graphic design business for a decade, it was only recently that Vella unleashed this new found passion which has now become her full time career. Vella’s recognizable style is ever evolving and crosses the line between illustrator and artist. Michelle is based in Toronto, Canada.
