Michele Cassou was born and
raised in southern France. As a young adult she moved to Paris where she
studied law, literature, and art. Inspired by watching children paint, she
discovered a way to express herself spontaneously and without need for
conventional training. By her early twenties painting had become her
fulltime passion. A unique approach to creativity grew out of her many
years of "just painting for herself" and her intense desire to share her work
led her to work with other people and to lead groups in the creative process.
In 1976 she founded the Painting Experience Studio in San Francisco where
she has touched many people's lives through ongoing classes and workshops,
as well as in centers throughout the United States. She continues to paint
and teach in the San Francisco Bay area.
