About Michiel Bechir
I have started my long virtual journey into Second Life as a photographer in 2009.
First my main motivation was to share the richness of creations of all those different sims, with all their aspects. During
my trips I did meet a lot of people from all over the world. They learned me a lot of their backgrounds, passions and interests.
I have discovered the possiblities from all kinds of tools which helped me to improve my captures. By editing them I try to add a personal touch and feeling.
Experiments with the effect of colors are often done, and more recently I am trying to show the details by working with high resolution photos.

Hi, I’m most happy to come into SL and share my real life paintings with you.
The best way to explain who I am and what I do is to simply invite you to my website.
You are very welcome to join me in one of my live zoom classes/circles or enjoy experiencing one of my FREE online video classes. Naturally, if you live in Orange County, California, once in person activities resume, join me in a class! I have lots of fun!
In the meantime, come on over to my NEW studio, courtesy of the Phoenix Artists Collaboration group (Thank you Audie and Skye) located on the gorgeous Cherished Melody sim and have a look at what I’m currently showing in honor of the Divine Feminine.
If you see something you like, just get me an IM or just say “hi” — I love to chat!
Have Fun Creating!
