Michelle’s art is created using latex, it’s a material she’s spent years working with, perfecting her skills in order to produce her compelling art. The idea came to her in a flash of inspiration while working on a latex outfit for herself. Michelle’s art radiates an underlying element of sexual association, not just from my imagery, but also the connotations of the medium in which she creates it. Each piece becomes defined and fetishized via its latex conceptualization. Michelle is the only artist in the UK working this way with the material and has carved a unique niche with her art which not only appeals to art lovers but to a new audience of latex lovers as well as the more serious latex connoisseurs bringing the material firmly out of the fashion/fetish industry and into interiors/art spaces.
Michelle has sold pieces worldwide and is gaining widespread attention for her provocative latex art. With several features on television and in the press, as well as her bestselling piece QE2, which made the front cover of Skin Two, an internationally distributed magazine.
