Michelle A. Hegyi?s abstractions of color and light have been described by one reviewer as ?landscapes of the soul."

A painter and colorist, she uses the computer extensively in her studio, alone and in combination with a variety of other media, currently enjoying the luminous qualities of encaustic.
