The Official Bio
(AKA PRESS RELEASE INFO)
Mic Boekelmann is a filipino-born painter and art coach on a mission to infuse excitement and enjoyment of life in everything she creates. With a vibrant, warm and dynamic style, her art and classes display the beauty and inspiration she sees in the people she meets.
This love and excitement for connecting with individuals of different backgrounds were influenced by Mic's childhood years growing up in the Philippines, Germany, Israel and the U.S. She believes there are more things that connect us than divide us. Her work creates opportunities for others to feel the same.
When Mic is not painting and hosting art classes in her Princeton home studio or online, she enjoys exploring the world and checking out food joints with her swabian husband and two cool kids.
