“Art is in the Eye of the Beholder………………….”
Driven by a passion for the arts, Michelle Martin has created an accomplished and viable Interior Design, Art Gallery and Custom Picture Framing business in Dolores Colorado, West Fork Gallery.
Michelle has added to the Gallery, Karma Coffee and Wine Bar. The bar features gourmet Neighbor’s Coffee and wine from a local vineyard, Mountain View Winery in Olathe Colorado.
The success of West Fork Gallery transcends the last 20 years of economic ups and downs with a combination of Michelle’s artistic professionalism and the intimate relationships she has built and continues to build with her clients world wide. Both local and international clients repeatedly rely on Michelle’s expert consultation and top of the line product knowledge to fulfill their interior design needs.
