"Local artist Michelle Chermaine is a self taught, multi-talented artist whose work is inspired by a wide range of symbols and imagery. Her paintings incorporate the symbology of the old ways, yet have a freshness and relevance to the modern observer. Rather than a direct representation of pagan symbols, her work carries a universal message and an appeal that resonates with people of every faith." Kyle West - Toronto Examiner
