Michelle Endersby - Awakening Around Roses

Growing up in Montmorency in the natural bushland beauty of the Eltham Shire where art and the environment were interconnected, Michelle developed at an early age a sense of wonder in the natural world and it is this that she wants to share through my art. She see's personality in individual plants and flowers which sometimes makes my florals or nature studies seem more like portraits than traditional florals.

Michelle wants her audience to get swept up by the magic that she see's, and feel emotion and intimacy towards her painting subjects. A lifelong interest and involvement with textiles drives her to explore the textural properties of her subjects be that the velvety petal of a rose or the meandering root systems of ancient Moreton Bay Fig Trees.

"A brush with death changed my life and strengthened my career as an artist. On awakening from a coma following emergency brain surgery to repair a ruptured blood vessel, I was presented with an inspirational vision. I found myself in a beautiful, light-filled rose garden and this vision hastened my recovery and illuminated my path forward. This incident has made me see the world through different eyes. I see beauty surrounding me and I want to share my vision with the world."
