Frequently Asked Questions

What has inspired Michelle?

Michelle grew up in Carnarvon, Western Australia.  Her Father worked with Elders Pastoral and her Mother with School Of The Air - there were therefore many trips into the outback of WA and the rich colours of her Australian artworks can be attributed to these experiences.  The animals within her works are anthropomorphised to represent what Michelle and her sister typically did to make their own fun in the bush and indeed the Pilbara region. 

A good example of this, is 'Up To His Neck In It' - derived from Michelle's childhood when her friends and herself used to collect ghost crabs at 'The Blowholes' not far from Carnarvon and secretly fill each-others sleeping bags with them!  Check out this fun illustration here...   https://www.michellepike.com.au/product-page/print-up-to-his-neck-in-it

Where does she live now?

Michelle now lives in the Sunshine Coast of Queensland Australia.  Many of her works since residing on the east coast of Australia reflect various experiences relevant to the area, including floods, fires and a myriad of new fauna.   Click on the links below to see some great talk pieces...
