Michelle Muldrow is a nationally recognized painter whose work is a conceptual exploration of the American landscape. Her work explores the relationships between landscape, consumerism and historical aesthetic philosophy. Born in 1968, Muldrow was raised on Air Force bases throughout America. This nomadic experience laid the foundation for a fascination with the American landscape and the vernacular of what defines the American experience.
While in high school, Muldrow attended the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C. and attended the University of Minnesota, where she earned a BFA in painting. After a 10-year sojourn as a musician, Muldrow returned to painting in 2000 and began exhibiting nationally. She enjoyed a residency at the Cooper Union Summer Residency Program in New York City in 2004. In 2006, she relocated from San Francisco to Cleveland, Ohio, where she now calls home. In 2009, Michelle Muldrow was named a fellow for the Creative Workforce Grant in Cuyahoga County, Ohio. Her work is featured in the 2010 Midwest edition of New American Paintings. Muldrow's paintings reside in the art collections of the Cleveland Clinic, Louis Microsoft, Louis Dreyful Collection, California Cryobank and IndyMac Bank. Michelle Muldrow is represented at Jen Bekman Gallery, New York City, NY; Koplin Del Rio Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; and Bonfoey Gallery, Cleveland, Ohio.
