Statement

Michelle is a Freelance Illustrator & Artist, specialising in the rendering of traditional fine-detailed pen and ink drawings, and can also work in a variety of styles and media.

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

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

In the hope to preserve and celebrate our built environment and the architects, artists who create them.  Her work documents and helps to preserve the architecture that so many peolpe take for granted and that is fast disapearing due to demolition or neglect.

 Michelle can also be commisioned for book illustrations
