Bio

Michelle Parsons works from organic forms including lobsters, fish and birds. Her style has an adaptive reverence for the subject and yet does not rely on it; elevating the forms with bright use of colour and suggestive mark-making. The resulting pieces are proud declarations of colour and expression. Colour, depth, texture and contrast – does is matter if it looks like a lobster or a fish? Not really… She specialises in monoprint, etching and lino printmakng alongside large-scale oil paintings, working with interior designers, restaurants and private clients worldwide. Michelle Parsons has exhibited extensively in London and East Anglia. She opens her studio every summer as part of the Suffolk Opera Studios group and is a member of the Ipswich Art Society.
