About the artist

I have loved being creative my entire life. Whether it's a cajun, Italian or asian dinner simmering in my kitchen or planning events, this is where I always focused my energy...then I found my love of art, leading to the creation of Isabelle's Ink LLC.

We moved to Ohio during Covid and I now know God was wanting me to slow down, pray more, and learn something about myself. One year later, my art journey started! My husband & kids (Adalyne & Beau) have been supportive of me turning our beautiful "library room" into a crazy messy art space.

I started creating alcohol ink prints and then developed my art with resin. The winter of 2021 I started selling my resin boards and alcohol ink prints for holiday gifts and now I am in three stores around northeastern Ohio. Bella Moxie in Medina, Handmade Haven in Strongsville, and seasonally in Meg's Makeshop on Kelley's Island. This summer I partnered with my dear friend, Angela Nicholson & her husband Ken with KNA designs for unique locally sourced handmade charcuterie boards and projects for our art workshops! We have started collaborating in offering Art Retreats and classes at my home including yoga around the pool, a gourmet coursed meal with wine, followed by an art class. In 2023 we will be hosting alcohol ink and resin classes at local Medina stores: Bella Moxie, Essential Escape Spa & Common Grounds. This has developed into our brand "L'Atelier For You" which is french for workshop.

Whats the story behind "Isabelle"? Our daughter, Isabelle Lois, went to heaven the night she was born on Aug 8, 2008. I have always wanted to honor her memory by doing something only God could have lead me to. To honor her, the proceeds I make will be giving back to our community. In 2021 & 2022, we shopped toys & clothes for children in need, volunteered at the Office for Older Adults In Medina County: shopping for a senior, teaching art classes and organizing fundraisers. This, I'm doing all through my love for our sweet Isabelle. So, if you buy one of my pieces or order a custom one, know that it has been prayed over in memory of her.

Thank you for all of the love and support!

With Much Love, Mishalene + Isabelle's Ink
