Michelle Mann is a mixed media artist and illustrator whose vibrant, joyful and whimsical work is inspired by nature, spirituality and a colourful imagination.
Michelle’s most ambitious project to date is the creation of the Gold Lotus Oracle deck, a set of cards and accompanying book used for guidance and self-growth. This project brought together her experience as an artist, psychic medium and teacher to create 47 paintings that were used to illustrate the individual cards as well as writing the accompanying book. The Gold Lotus Painting series were exhibited as part of the project and has resulted in awards including COVR industry awards for both deck and book.
It is the intersection of painting, writing and spirituality that holds Michelle’s fascination and underpins all that she creates – whether abstract or figurative paintings in oil and acrylic, or the children’s book illustrations, pattern design and unique travel journals that round out her creative practice.
Michelle’s work is held by collectors both nationally and internationally. Michelle has been exhibiting since 2016 in galleries in South East Queensland and Sydney. Michelle is based in the beautiful Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia, where you will find her exploring and creating in her home studio in Woombye.
