Michela Sorrentino was born in Montreal, Quebec, but grew up in West Vancouver, BC. She studied Fine Art at Capilano University and then went on to further studies in art at Les Beaux Arts, then specializing in textile design at ESMOD in Paris, France. She worked as a textile print designer in France and Italy for many years overseeing print collections in India and China before returning to Canada where she started a graphic design company with her husband, Hermani + Sorrentino Design.
Of recent years, painting has become Michela's main practice although she also still enjoys printmaking and monotype. In her work, Michela uses many mediums and often finds herself breaking the rules and mixing mediums such as cold wax, oil, acrylic, ink, gouache and charcoal.
Ongoing education includes having worked with artists such as Harold Klunder, Eva Isaksen, Nicholas Wilton, Rebecca Crowell and Steve Aimone.
