“What color is it?” This has always been Michelle Jahraus’s first question in deciding on a bike, cat, sweater, car, house, etc. A double major at Wheaton College in art and geology prepared her to investigate and illustrate all types of natural beauty. She honed her painting skills doing murals in businesses and homes for a time. Now she has turned those skills toward portraying the natural beauty of Leelanau County. Her studio and gallery, Duck to Swan Gallery is located in the village of Cedar, Michigan.
