My Story.

I am

Michelle Dyk

I’m an artist hailing from Billings, MT. My journey with art started as a preteen seeking solace in a world where I felt like I didn’t quite fit in. Art became my lifeline, offering connection and vitality in moments of loneliness. High school led me to a passionate pursuit of art, and post-graduation, I followed my cousin’s path, earning a fine arts degree. It was during this time that I discovered the paradoxical nature of art—it’s both elusive and everything, an integral part of my soul. Graduating with honors, I soon realized my artistic prowess wasn’t matched by marketing skills. Years in the service industry sustained me as I continued my artistic endeavors, participating in group and solo shows, curating exhibits, and collaborating with fellow creatives in Billings. In 2014, I found my artistic haven at Billings Open Studio, a community I’ve been a part of ever since. The birth of my child in 2019 prompted a hiatus, compounded by the challenges of the pandemic. Recently freed from a corporate position, I’ve decided to rekindle my love for art and connection. Collage, especially in its analog form, has become my focal point. My process involves weaving together disparate elements from print materials, a skill refined over time. Growing up in Billings, MT, after a childhood in France, instilled in me a grit and fervor that money can’t buy. I invite you to delve into my work, hoping you may discover something that resonates in your heart through both my art and my authentic journey.

Art is Life

Art is more than a canvas; it’s a heartbeat. It’s the pulse that brings color, meaning, and rhythm to our existence. A celebration of creativity’s power to illuminate, provoke, and connect.
