MICHELE ILLING

    I am an award winning artist and encouraging tutor living in the southeast of England. I think my painting style could be described as expressive and colourful and I work and teach with various mediums and techniques over a variety of subjects.

    In the past I have worked as a freelance illustrator in advertising and publishing, my work has been reproduced in books, on book jackets and in several magazines. I have had paintings shown in many joint exhibitions across the UK including at the Mall Galleries, London. In 2014, I received the Faber-Castell Award for my pastel painting of 'Big Baby'. I was recently honoured to be a featured artist in the February edition of the Pastel Journal of America where I described the creative processes, techniques and challenges involved in painting pets to commission. I am lucky enough to have paintings in collections at home and abroad.
