Michelle Hold believes that you are born with an artistic mind. When Michelle was aged 10, her creative passion blossomed and she began designing her own dresses. Michelle started studying architecture in Austria, then dropped by chance into modelling which gave her exposure on the international circuit. She lived in Paris, New York, Hong Kong and Munich, where she attended various art and textile design classes and subsequently worked as a textile designer in Milan where her designs have been used by Krizia, Escada, Ungaro and Bluemarin.

A few years ago Michelle finally began her career as a painter. Michelle gets her inspiration from everything around her. From looking at nature, to reading about new discoveries in science or watching fashion shows.

With colour playing a vital role in all of her paintings, you can’t help being mesmerised by the intricate layer upon layer of each painting.
