Art from the Countryside
Michelle’s studio is situated on the grounds of a 16th century farmhouse in France. Her animals, nature and the countryside are a constant source of inspiration for her work. If she is not in the studio, she can be found walking in the countryside.
Michelle primarily works in watercolor, ink pen, gouache, acrylic paints on Fabriano watercolor paper. She also likes to combine traditional work with digital.
In 2014, Michelle created several illustrations based on the Tour de France. She was a featured artist on BBC Countryfile, regularly writes for Leisure Painter Magazine, has worked with the Co-operative on publications and has worked on larger scale projects for Patagonia, creating window illustrations.
