Michelle’s figurative style captures the character and movement of her subjects, whilst photography and drawing from life enable her to maintain accuracy.
She constructs sculptures from clay, plaster or wax.
Her tactile sculptures are all hand made in the UK each one an individual.
Michelle has a wide range of ceramic, bronze and Bronze resin sculptures, produced with a variety of glazes and textures.
Michelle’s interior collection of sculpture included wrens, gold-crests, kingfishers, squirrels, owls among others.
Michelle says: ‘Growing up in Somerset with an artistic family background, I soon developed my own artistic identity shaped by my love of animals and the countryside.
My work begins through a process of photography, drawing from life and making experimental maquettes. I construct my original sculptures using traditional materials such as clay, wax, plaster and often incorporate found objects. A mould is made from my original and my finished pieces are made from ceramics, bronze and bronze resin.
Through my sculptural practice I seek to celebrate natural forms, capturing the vitality, essence and presence of the creatures I depict; a tangible glimpse of the natural world.
I hope to covey the importance of the relationship between animals, humans and the environment.
I previously worked in a bronze casting foundry, where I developed a range of sculptures. Recently I have focused on producing a body of work in ceramics, which I cast and fire myself. I am also concentrating on creating some larger scale sculptures in bronze resin.’
