During her student days Michelle is strongly influenced by the French Impressionists. After an education as a character designer and illustrator Michelle will work in advertising for a while. But more and more she concentrates on her painting. The world of fast advertising messages and deadlines clears space for the silent world of the studio, patient observation and slow build up of timeless compositions. In our postmodern age where official academia reject beauty as corny and museums of ‘fine’ (beaux) arts get amputated to museums of ‘contemporary’ art, Michelle resolutely opts for beauty as an objective yardstick. By examining the form, the continuous search for the essence and the best composition, Michelle tries to create another pristine reality. The paintings radiate tranquillity and balance. They are in the artist’s own words, ‘emergency exits from our stressed consumer society’. The technique of the impressionists in combination with modern materials, colours and objects, results in a contemporary romantic impressionism with roots in a centuries-old tradition of painting. How realistic and detailed they are, the Cat paintings of Michelle arise from a tightly composed abstraction. Already from a distance the colours, shapes and subtle lighting should seduce the viewer. But only on approach the paintings will reveal their surprising brush details.
