At the heart of everything I do is a love of nature, people, and places. I believe there’s something very special about expressing our stories and special moments in brushstrokes - and my clients are definitely looking for that little bit of magic for their wedding or home.
Style-wise, my watercolour illustrations are painted to give a feeling of harmony and uplift. Using bright clear colours, I paint with simple, often broad brushstrokes. The resulting look is something that is really quite timeless, a balance of traditional subjects with a contemporary feel. My clients also share my love of elegance and understated style, where quality is very important. This shows in the materials I use, from pigments to paper and printing.
I apply my signature watercolour painting style to a range of products for wedding and home, from characterful wedding invitations and distinctive venue illustrations, to meaningful house portraits and colourful original art.
How will you bring a burst of creativity into your life?
Hi, I’m Michelle - curious creative, people person, and lover of stories. It’s safe to say that my life has been dedicated to finding new ways of expressing creativity, whether it was studying illustration at university or stepping into the digital side of things with graphic design. But it was during my time as a scenic painter in the film industry that my love for painting was rekindled and I reconnected with the joy and passion I’d felt as a 14 year old trying out proper artists paints for the first time.
Roxwell Press was founded to bring together passion and skill in a meaningful way. In an increasingly digital world, I wanted to make something that helped people connect with each other in a more tangible way. This has become a core value in everything I do. Whether it’s creating a wedding invitation so beautiful and personal that people won’t want to throw them away or painting a portrait of the home that has been the setting of life’s significant moments - they’re keepsakes that connect us and our stories.
