“Paparazzi” is a series of paintings in the technique of soft pastel on paper that portrays women, persons who have been taken as models with magazine covers. A person is a unique individual, and she can’t be the same or similar to some other. The eyes, the lips, the position of the eyebrows, facial expressions, the way they looked at some of the characteristics of the person are to me as a young painter very important. This series of paintings shows the feminine woman, on the one hand, full of pain, suffering and the other woman is a living being with emotions and the likes.

She was inspired by fashion, art, and especially human relationships.

Michelle’s stunning abstract canvases are almost overwhelmingly vibrant. “I am inspired by nature and new science that meets spirituality. Creating from a place of no time, no space no body. The colours are vital to convey my message of harmony and well-being and I am interested in the perception of space and emotion through the equilibrated use of color, which I have trained while working in textile design.” Michelle’s works are simply impossible to look away from!
