Introduction

 

 

 

Taking inspiration from contemporary styles and the traditions from past pen and ink artists, michelle finds particular delight in texture, light and form of the landscape. 

My work as an artist focuses on architectural ornamentation, as our historic architecture stands as a reminder of forgotten ways of life that shaped the way we live today.
