"You as an animal!"
Taeuber Troupe connects 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. Michelle has been performing since 2014 at events including the Seattle Arts in Parks program, the 2018 Seattle Mayors Arts Awards, the 2019 Northwest Public Art Consortium Conference, the 2020 Artist Trust Auction, the Tacoma Art Museum, Pike Place Evening Market, Fremont Sunday Market, the Vashon Farmers Market, and many more.
She's painted people as all kinds of animals: From elephants and crocodiles to honey bees and kangaroos. Wombat, whale, or wildebeest, what kind of animal are you?
