"I spend a great part of my time on and near water and am still amazed by the ingenuity and beauty of small craft and their relationship to the ocean in all its’ moods. Their shapes, colors and relationship to the water are endlessly diverse and each one has a character and history that is the element I’m trying to portray in my paintings."

|Mitchell's dog, Bow, helps out in the studio. Bow was named after the Bow River in Calgary, Alberta, and is Mitchell's BFF.|
Mitchell was kind enough to share some shots of her studio as well, so you can go behind the scenes and catch a glimpse into her process.
|Finished and in-process pieces go up on the wall.|
