Michelle Madison has been taking photographs since she was 10 years old. Early on she learned to value “quiet time” and in that time explored the beauty of the world around her, camera in hand. That made her happy and peaceful. As an adult, she decided to share that peace and beauty with others in hopes that they would experience that same feeling. Her photography has been seen in corporate, private, public and gallery settings. Her art has been on tour throughout the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area. Michelle’s first exhibit was in 1988 at the Community College of Baltimore County at Catonsville. She has emerged as an accomplished photo artist demonstrating excellence in a wide range of subject matter. Her portfolio has expanded to include scenic, architectural, abstract, black and white works, weddings and portraits. Michelle won a Baltimore Sun photograph of the Week award. She is a member of the Baltimore County Arts Guild and resides in Halethorpe, MD. Her work can be seen on Facebook under the business name 3MPIKS.
