Michelle was awarded a First Class Degree in Fine Art at Manchester Polytechnic and was granted a British Academy major State Studentship to pursue an MA in Fine Art at Newcastle University. An established artist, she has exhibited widely in this country and her work is in private and public collections in England, USA (Harvard University) and Portugal. Her work evokes an experience associated with place rather than literal representation.
Inspired by places as far a field as France, Prague and North Manchester, she draws upon two cultures - her Jewish background and modern life.
'A deft touch in the handling of oil and watercolour. emotive use of resonant colours, evokes the pure pleasure of painting... refreshing to view time-honoured work bereft of irony.' - Tim Birch, City Life.
