London based artist, Michelle is fascinated by patterns, nature, shapes, colour and anything quirky and out of the ordinary. Her art is a mixture of Islamic geometry combined with the contemporary techniques of today, whilst honouring the traditions of the old. Themes of inspiration involve biomorphs, nature, cosmos, incorporated into dots, paintings and fine line drawings.
Michelle believes that Islamic art is open to all interpretations, and fundamentally, connects the boundaries, keeping a contemporary twist, whilst adding modernity. The paintings and drawings created try to convey the feeling of ‘falling in’, showing depth and aerial perspective into most of the pieces created.
When not at home creating art, working or doing yoga, she can mainly be found in an art gallery, museum or park in London, looking at (more) art and other sources of inspiration.
