raingate.net, is just a single page!
But on that single page, Michelle provides a bit of background about herself, a link to a downloadable resume, an e-mail contact link, and two portfolio sections that provide a good representation of her work. By using her own work as a page background, she's created an attractive site with a lot of impact.
There is also a link to the artist's page at deviantART, where she maintains a journal and posts new work.
Hoefener's site shows that a basic site need not be boring, and can be an effective showcase for the artist and her work.
