Her digital artworks are produced by useing a combination of manipulated photographs, scanned material and digital colour application which are then combined and digitally layered to create these multi-faceted artworks
Having studied Fine Art at Central St. Martins and Byam Shaw School of Art, Michelle then went on to specialise in printmaking. In 2008 she graduated with an MA in Printmaking from the University of Brighton, in association with the London Print Studio.
My prints are a response to my fascination with the aesthetics and ephemerality of nature. I am inspired by both the simplicity and complexity of natural forms. My work is concerned with accepting that everything is in a state of transition and acknowledging the inevitability of decay, death and rejuvenation.
The digital artworks are produced by using a combination of manipulated photographs, scanned material and digital colour application which are then combined and digitally layered. I like to view my prints as an amalgamation of parts taken from nature with each layer representing changes that have taken place, life-cycles and the passage of time.
