Michele del Pilar

“In nature, there are continuous, pulsating movements and patterns, vital and vibrant. When painting, my aim is to explore... the arrangement of line, shape, color and form... I strive to imbue my work with these connecting, harmonious rhythms... Through this visual language, I hope to share the extraordinary beauty of our world.”

Michele del Pilar’s life long dream was to be a painter. She holds a degree in graphic and advertising design from the Art Institute of Philadelphia.  Michele has been juried into a number of exhibitions and shows.  Her career began in the print and design world, followed by a short stint working as a dental hygienist until she decided to pursue her dream of becoming an artist.
Immersing herself in study, she sought instruction from some of the area’s best and most knowledgeable teachers. She took figure drawing and color study classes under the tutelage of master painters.  Strong academic based study under master portrait painters Cedric and Joanette Egeli and John Ebersberger were instrumental in building her skills.  She was fortunate to have the opportunity to study figurative and constructive anatomy with the brilliant sculptor, Steve Perkins.  She readily gives credit to these artist-instructors who have been so important in providing her with a solid foundation and the broad knowledge which she draws upon for her work.
Michele is a native of Maryland and currently resides in Annapolis. Her paintings are represented by McBride Gallery in Annapolis, MD.
Michele is a member of Mid-Atlantic Plein Air Painters Association, Maryland Society of Portrait Painters and the Portrait Society of America. She is included in the historic book by Gary Pendleton “100 Plein Air Painters of the Mid-Atlantic” published in 2014.
