Rockford artist Michelle Dorr is best known for her colorful furniture and funky wall pieces. Many are included in personal and corporate collections including hospitals, restaurants, and offices. About 5 years ago her love of animals and a passion for painting led her to pet portraits. Michelle has done over 80 commissioned portraits for animal lovers as far away as Germany.
Growing up in a family of artists Michelle watched her father, who was local artist Willard Dorr, paint animal and human portraits. She is primarily a self-taught artist but learned from him how to paint the eyes to capture the soul. Michelle lives in Rockford in a fun colorful house with her husband Tom and her beloved animal family of 2 dogs and 2 cats, all rescued animals.
