Michelle was born in 1969 and grew up in Carnarvon, Western Australia. She now resides in a small pocket of paradise known as Buderim, on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland, Australia - with her husband Andy, sons Axel and Jodi and groodle Daisy. A self-taught Artist, Michelle draws inspiration from both her own childhood memories and those currently being formed by her two young sons. Often described as quirky and whimsical, Michelle's artwork always provides that little bit extra to both the characters and the story-line as a whole.
