Meet The Owner

Michele D Wilson


Michele started her painting journey August 2022.  She saw an art piece she wanted.  She felt like it was out of her budget.  She didn’t know anything about art at all.  She researched how to create wall art.  She didn’t know anything about canvases or Art Galleries.  She purchased her first canvas in August 2022.   She didn’t know anything about acrylic or oil paint.  She purchased her first acrylic paint the latter part of August 2022.  Through fear she held on to the canvas and paint for 3 weeks prior to attempting to create anything.  She prayed and asked God to remove the fear. God removed the fear, and she went on the create a gallery hallway in her home.

With her home being filled with art on just about every wall.  She stopped painting for about 2 months.  A family friend came over for the Thanksgiving holiday and she purchased a painting off the wall in her home.  This is how LYFE paintings was birthed.

Michele’s passion for God’s Kingdom agenda to be accomplished here on earth through her art shows in every piece. My goal is to exhibit the creativity, love and will of our Creator God- Jehovah in my art.

September 1, 2023 Michele and her husband purchased Giddens Gallery of Fine Arts located in the historic district of Grapevine (624 S Main St).  This purchase made her the 1st African American owned Art gallery in Historic Grapevine.  In February 2024 she was featured on CBS 11 and Fort Worth Star-Telegram in celebration of Black History month.

Michele’s motto is: God blessed me with this gift, and I have dedicated my gift of art back to him.  Revelations 4:11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.  Everything we are and have belong to God.   May God be Glorified in ALL Things!
