Michelle Sakhai’s paintings reference the teachings of Transformative Art. With a focus on light and energy, each spontaneous stroke serves as a vehicle for healing and channeling peace. While Sakhai’s approach borders on the style of Abstract Expressionism with free subconscious markings, her formal background as a plein air painter directs her work to develop considering light.

Using calm and at times warm colors and gold and silver leaf, the process is emotionally transformative and spiritually expansive. While Sakhai’s abstract paintings reflect an internal energy that comes from the present, her work continues to be informed by landscapes of her past.
