Michelle Gerber

"art is the smile of the soul"

Michelle Gerber is a South-African born fine artist who currently lives in Greece with her Greek husband Christos Maousidis and their two children, Kassiani and Babbie Kosmas.

Most of her work is done in oil paint but she has been known to use anything from plaster of Paris to sand, gold, glue, wood or even lentils to create art. She has been forced to become very versatile through the years and thus she can do almost anything including murals, decor and illustration.

Michelle says: "Art gives me great joy and through the use of line, form, colour, balance and depth I have found something that gives my soul flight. It's my honor and my pleasure to share that with others".

Underneath you will see how the common creativity of the couple spills over into all sorts of creations, some functional art in the form of sculpted marble fire-places and huge sculped restaurant decor made out of paper mache by her Greek husband, Christos Maousidis and then some of the fine art of the South African boere-meisie Michelle Gerber, all done in oils (with a bit of candlewax, glue, turps, enamel, gold leaf and love thrown in).
