Michel Martel moved to Naramata four years ago from Seattle, WA. He was born in Quebec City. In his work life and in his art life Michel travelled the world feeding his passion for color and culture.
An artist since childhood, Michel gathers inspiration from his travels both locally and abroad. He had the opportunity to present his work In Quebec City, Seattle, Buenos Aires and, of course, here in BC.
He was initially trained at a private art academy in Quebec City and later participated in many art workshops in Seattle, USA and Buenos Aires, Argentina.
In this month feature painting he expresses the atmosphere of calm and serenity of the Chute Creek waterfalls located close to the North Naramata Road in Indian Rock, just a few kilometers from the Lang Vineyard.
Michel is a member of the Naramata Arts Studio and the Federation of Canadian Artists with art displayed at Lang Vineyard year round. You can see his most recent paintings on Instagram at @michel_martel_arts
