About UsA look behind the scenes at Michelle Whitmore Art Gallery
Meet Michelle Whitmore
I have been a professional photographer for over 10 years, specialising in floral art and insect photography.
I’ve never really been a hands-on arty person but over the past few years I have fallen head over heels in love with the digital darkroom – big time! I can spend many hours brainstorming an idea, shooting models, insects, flowers et al. Then create unique and unusual pieces of art, just like the one on the left.
There’s something very special about taking a subject out of its natural environment, infusing some additional images, adding textures and applying some digital wizardry to create something unique; and all whilst trying to maintain a natural look.
Some pieces are embellished with Gold leaf and acrylic paint to add to the magic.
I’ve heard my work described as “Fine Art meets Contemporary Surrealism meets illogical contemplation with a touch of fairy dust.” I like that description – a lot!!

A few things about me
An insight into some of the other passions and guilty pleasures in my world.
Flowers + Gardens
Wandering round a well organised flower patch on a lazy afternoon ~ heaven!
There’s nothing like a heavy dose of loud music whilst creating a masterpiece.
The manoeuvrability and speed of these machines ~ simply breath-taking.
And finally – what’s not to love about spiders?
A gardeners best friend.
Oh, did I mention our passion for building sheds?
