Michelle Lee’s art practice is derived from passionate debate about what constitutes a life well lived.
From the simple joy of intertwining feet with a lover, to smelling the scent of scorched Australian earth after summer rain, Michelle explores the world around her through abstract yet deeply personal art.
Originally a graphic designer by trade, Michelle’s journey towards becoming a recognised artist has involved discarding neat lines, growing strength through intuition, and focussing on the sensual wonders of her world.
Michelle uses a layering technique to express her fascination with human emotion, nature, food and culture. Acrylic paint provides the foundation of her iconic style, with abstract illustrations and line-work applied to create a dynamic canvas. This process is repeated over and over again, creating multiple layers and more complex meanings, until Michelle arrives at a piece of art that exposes her soul.
