Michelle Jae Andrews

  • Artist’s Statement

    Michelle loves the aesthetics of old houses. She loves the patinas of aged and peeling paint and wallpaper, the evidence of past colours and patterns. When she paints, Michelle imagines that she has wandered into an old chateau or manor house and discovered wonderful faded paintings on the walls. She tries to make her paintings look vintage and antique, rough around the edge and distressed.

  • Biography

    Michelle Jae Andrews is a Brisbane-based artist currently managed by Aspire Gallery, who's work aims to sit at the intersection of culture, time and modernity.

    She has been a finalist and recipient of numerous accolades here in Australia, whilst also selected for internationally recognised exhibitions in both Poland and the Ukraine.

  • Influences

    The patterns and flowers that populate Michelle's time-worn walls are inspired by Jacobean embroidery, 18th century chinoiserie and carpets and ceramics that might have been found along the Silk Road.
