'Michelle's paintings seem to flow flawlessly, the paint dancing along the canvas in a whirlwind of emotion that radiates from each element, as if it was meant to be there and just waiting to be brought to life'. Andres Silvera, Visual Artist

Painting in an expressionist style, I create abstract, floral and landscape paintings infused with bright colors. I’m inspired by the beauty of nature - a view, pattern, texture, light cast on an object and the emotions that are evoked. My creative process evolves intuitively from what I can only describe as a blissful ‘altered state’ - blending my chosen colors directly on canvas, watching them merge before me, layer upon layer, leads the way. Adding my signature whimsical dots completes each journey.


While I continue to explore this fascination with paint, I remain humbled having my artwork not only awarded but knowing that wherever displayed my pieces bring a sense of joy in this sometimes hectic world in which we live.
