Meet Michele Randall, IEA Mentor

Michele Randall

What Michele Randall offers her mentees:

Michele works with artists to develop goals and habits that help them reach the next stage of their practice. She actively listens to the artist to understand their aspirations and challenges.

Michele encourages both routine and experimentation, fostering opportunities for inspiration and play within a structured plan. She empowers each artist with a body of resources, knowledge, and tools that she has gathered during her career. Working in collaboration, an environment of support and growth is created.

Michele asks of her mentees that they make a commitment of time in the studio, and be willing to experiment and think deeply about their work and practices.
