Michelle Gilks Artist

I usually begin each canvas with no preconceived idea, letting the image suggest itself over time. I put on my favourite music on and just begin!

Layers are built up using free brush strokes, drips, stamping and stencilling. My process is playful and constantly evolving.

Colour plays a central role in all my work, with combinations emerging instinctively. I love the way colours can harmonise with, or stand apart from, each other. I am constantly surprised by what colour can do.

Creating something on a canvas where nothing existed before is the ultimate achievement for me. I love the process. I love the product. I love the way that my art can bring joy not only to myself, but also to others.
You can find more of my work on Facebook, Etsy and Instagram. I exhibit regularly around Perth, with recent shows being at the Moores Building and Kidogo Arthouse in Fremantle. I am also a member of ARC (Artists Retail Collective) in Armadale.
I look forward to chatting to you at the Perth Makers Market.
