In Michelle Wie's Gallery, Artistry Off the Course

The golfer Michelle Wie looked up from her artwork and said with a laugh, “It’s like drawings you do in fifth grade and someone says, ‘You need help.’ ”

The 20-year-old Wie is America’s kid sister, a 6-foot Hawaiian of Korean descent who hits the ball as far as male professionals and talks like a Valley Girl. That is her public image, but Wie’s artwork reveals another side, her stylized drawings illuminating an interior life that is more Tim Burton than Walt Disney.
