Inspired by the natural beauty of the Western Australian coastline and coastal forest areas, her paintings are as spectacular and timeless as the locations depicted. The trees that find a place amongst the rock and hard ground, blackboys standing tall to watch over an ancient water.

Children on the beach playing in the sand, holds a special place for Michelle, living in Dunsborough and watching her own two children grow up on the beach with a bucket and spade, watching their playtime in their timeless escape the beach.
Michelle find the intricacy of flowers a treat to study and work on. The texture and colour that flow along the pedals are one of natures truly amazing designs and display of colour. Michelle takes the time to look deeply into the flowers she paints.
The depth and lush colour of these roses make you feel like you could run your hands over the pedals.
