Artist Michelle Martin Overcash
Fine Art Photography
My approach to photography is based on my belief that every living thing carries within it the beauty and splendor of the stars. As a photographer, I make it my business to capture the beauty that resides within. Though I’ve always known that exquisite beauty can exist within ephemeral moments, I didn’t always feel that it was my personal calling to capture those fleeting moments in time.
I graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with top honors with a bachelor’s degree in public administration and spent several years with a national non-profit organization. Drawn to the art of photography so strongly, I eventually left office work to pursue it on a full time basis.
I specialize in natural light portraiture and fine art photography. I take great pride in my versatility and approach all projects with an artist’s eye. While I have little formal photographic training, I have spent countless hours learning the craft and continue to hone my skills.
This is one of my favorite pieces. It is a macro photograph of a simple pink carnation. However, it reminds me of a ballet with the way that the individual petals swirl amongst one another to create a delicate, but emotional, display.
