Michelle Oakden

Michelle Oakden is a Newcastle based artist who explores the abstract world using bold, vibrant colours and organic shapes.

For Michelle, creating art helps bring a sense of balance into her life. As an engineer by trade she loves to solve problems but the abstract creativity that she engages in through her artwork allows her to tap into another part of herself where she can just let things flow.  

Michelle works with acrylic inks and paints on both paper and canvas. Whichever medium she uses though, she says she feels the joy in creating something that's interesting, beautiful and, above all, colourful! Michelle has completed a Cert IV in Design and has studied with a variety of art teachers over the years.
