About Michelle Angelique
I am a self-taught traditional artist based in Sydney, Australia specialising in detailed and realistic oil paintings and graphite drawings. I enjoy the challenge, beauty and emotion found in portraiture and landscapes/seascapes.
I grew up inspired by the great, classical painters. I fell in love with using realism to explore and portray fantastical, mythological and emotional themes.
I prefer to tell a particular story, infused with rich emotion, through each piece of art I create.
After studying Psychology and Music degrees, I went on to study concept art at the Enmore Design Centre. It was the traditional lessons there that re-ignited my love for traditional drawing and painting.
My business began with friends commissioning artworks for their loved ones, and selling prints of my work on other websites. It wasn't long before I started my website and began doing more commissions and selling more original paintings and prints. In mid-2017 I quit my full-time day job to build my business and work on my craft full-time. I believe in quality work, and putting 100% into every piece I create, whether it's an original, a commission, or even a print.
I put everything I have into each and every one of my pieces. These are the pieces of who I am as an artist and a person.
