Michèle believes that art is a medium for the elevation of the spirit yet remains rooted in the experience of everyday life. Her aim is not to copy nature, but to interpret the essential character of things, submitting it to the spirit of the place. Her approach is based on visual sensations, and markmaking is the most fundamental element in her art - a scratch of charcoal, a line of ink, a splash of colour, is how she expresses emotion, movement, the essence of her theme. She plays with different mediums, draws with different objects. The outcome is never predictable, and the theme is always just a starting point. Recently she started the #cameraroll series capturing the characteristics of people, places, moments in the daily snapshots recorded on her phone.
