Artist of the Month: Jill Carey Michaels About the Artist Top: 'Road Ties,' painting. Above: 'Sinclair,' painting. Above right: 'Deer Registration,' painting. 6 O-Town Scene Dec. 6, 2012 Contributed Multimedia artist, musician and writer Jill Carey Michaels knew from an early age that she was an artist; her free time was spent painting, drawing and writing in sketchbooks. Eventually, she earned a BFA in illustration from the Philadelphia College of Art, and it was no surprise to anyone when she launched her own illustration company, Two Hearts Gifts, inspired by her passion for pen, ink and watercolor. The artist printed and handpainted her designs into glass plates, greeting cards, tea towels and jewelry, selling them to such clients as The Museum of Modern Folk Art in Lincoln Center and Nordstrom department stores in California. With the focus leaning more towards technology, Carey Michaels made a shift and immersed herself in the world of computers, receiving an MFA in computer art from The School of Visual Arts in NYC. She wound up working in the computer graphics department for NBC, Court TV and various Internet companies. She now lives in Oneonta with her husband, musician Ed Michaels, and teaches digital storytelling, Flash animation, website design, art appreciation, graphic art, color theory and drawing for The Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online, SUNY Empire Online and SUNY Delhi.
