"You as an animal!"
connecting people of all ages
with the magic of art and animals.
Artist Michelle Lassaline, dressed in her handmade papier-mache animal masks and costumes, paints watercolor portraits of people as their favorite animal. From street fairs to museum openings, Michelle (as Coyote, Pelican, or Bear) has been performing
since 2014. She has painted over 2,000 portraits of people as animals; wolves, otters, dolphins, donkeys, bees, llamas, goats, and eels. She's met caracals, capybaras, crocodiles, and axolotls, and even an occasional kangaroo. Wombats, whales, or walruses, what kind of animal are you?
