ARTIST: Michelle Leigh


Michelle Leigh is an established artist who has exhibited widely in this country,and whose work is held in private and public collections around the world including Portugal, Boston USA, London, Manchester Airport and Manchester City Galleries Rutherson Loan Collection.

She is featured in the book ‘A Colourful Canvas:Twelve Women Artists in the Northwest’ by Wendy J Levy & Judy Rose, ‘Who´s Who In Art’ 2008, and ‘World Who´s Who of Women-15th Edition’ 2009.

Her work evokes an experience associated with place rather than literal representation.

Michelle uses oil paint, watercolour, etching and woodcuts to explore the world around her. Sketch books act as aide-memoire, when in the studio pruning back memory to the essential part of information.
