About Us

A 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.

I find it very exciting to take a subject out of its natural environment, infuse some additional images, add textures and apply some digital wizardry; and all whilst trying to maintain a natural look.

Embellishing all Limited Editions artwork with Gold leaf and acrylic paint has enhanced the beauty of each piece and adds to the magic.

I’ve heard my work described as “Fine Art meets Contemporary Surrealism meets illogical contemplation with a touch of fairy dust.”

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!

Heavy Metal

There’s nothing like a heavy dose of loud music whilst creating a masterpiece.

Fast Jets

The manoeuvrability and  speed of these machines ~ simply breath-taking.

Spiders

And finally – what’s not to love about spiders?
A gardeners best friend.

Oh, did I mention our passion for sheds?
