Born and educated in the Netherlands, Michelle has always had a close, emotional affinity to water. She was inspired at an early age by the beauty of light reflections on the canal that ran alongside her house. This developed into a deep love of the ocean in her adult years.
‘I wanted to create a set that you could use in your studio at home, or take to the beach with you. I wanted to make sure that the set allowed as much versatility with the palette as possible: stormy days, azure skies, delicate mornings, or vibrant sunsets, in addition to allowing for all the different sand and pebble beaches. I’ve engineered it loosely so that the top line can be used for skies, the middle line for the sea, and the bottom line for the sand, although these can be all mixed around and interchanged. Of course with the added bonus that the box isn’t too big to take for plane air expeditions!’
