Michelle Ollivier works with watercolour depicting flowers and plants. Fastidious observation is at the heart of her practice in contrast to the fleeting nature of her subjects. Composition is important to the themes within the paintings, alluding to the passage of time and a sense of contemplation. Michelle graduated in 1997 from Chelsea College of Art with a BA(hons) Fine Art. She has had various exhibitions in London, now located in Reigate, Michelle has a studio at home and continues to show her work.
