You’re all familiar with Michelle Wie, the golfer, but did you know she’s also an artist?

When Wie isn’t playing golf, you’ll likely find her out with friends or at home with a paintbrush in hand.

She dabbles in everything from painting watercolors to sketching. Her artwork is just as eclectic as she is, often featuring skulls and alternate realities.

” I don’t know how to explain them,” Wie told USA Today. “But they release some dark feelings in me, and to me, they make me happy.”

Wie had a tough time last week during the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic, failing to make the cut after coming down with flu-like symptoms. When she’s healthy again, look for Wie to be a major contender, riding the momentum of her U.S. Women’s Open win to a steady season.
