About Michelle

Michelle Mann is a mixed media artist and illustrator living in the beautiful Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. It has been Michelle’s home all her life although she has travelled to many destinations in the world, she still loves to come home to such paradise.

Michelle’s current body of work is inspired by her connection with spirit and conveying that which is invisible into form. As well as larger works in acrylic and oil Michelle also loves to illustrate for children’s books, pattern design and makes unique travel journals. Michelle’s work is vibrant, joyful and whimsical.

One of Michelle’s biggest projects was creating the Gold Lotus Oracle deck where she painted all 47 images for the deck and wrote a book that accompanies the deck. The oracle is used for guidance and self-growth. It is a culmination of experience from her many years as a psychic medium and teacher.

Michelle has held two solo exhibitions, holds awards for Gold Lotus oracle, finalist in Houston Quilt show and her work shown in galleries in South East Queensland and Sydney.

Her work is held by collectors both nationally and internationally. Most days you will find Michelle playing with colour in her home studio in Woombye.
