ARTIST RESUME/ CV
Michelle Bond was born and raised till the age of 17 in Manila Philippines. She immigrated to San Francisco in 1980. Growing up in a musically inclined family, her art work began at the early age of 7 in the 1970’s. Her early influences were works of Picasso, Kandinsky, Miro, and Dali. Her early musical and artistic background is defined in the lyrical, playful and colorful works, depicted both in her paintings and printmaking. She writes poetry, plays music, and sketches during her free time.
She began painting at the age of 7 and continued all the way thru college where she finished and graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree from San Francisco State University with an emphasis on Printmaking and Painting in 1996. She has 2 juried exhibitions during her college years.
After graduation, she started a landscape construction and gardening business which took 20 years for her to establish. She also began in 2000 a Certificate Degree in Landscape Architecture from UC Berkeley which she earned in 2010. She has designed over 5000 gardens ranging from 400 square ft roof top gardens to 3 acres in Montara, California including a 1acre garden in Sweden. Her gardens have been featured in books, blogs, websites and magazines. Her garden business name is Thumbellina Gardens Inc.
Recently in the past 6 years, with a desire to paint, she joined an artist group, OBA, Ocean Beach Artists in the Outer Sunset in 2013. She started slowly and went back to painting, producing a new series of watercolor paintings inspired by her landscape contracting work from 2000-2010
