Artist Michelle McCloskey Collins draws her inspiration from the elements and human nature to create an expressive body of work. Her paintings are dancing with colour, energy, emotion, shape & movement. Michelle cites Jackson Pollock and Hilma Af Klint as prominent influences of her practice. Previously Michelle was the Director of Athena Galleries, whilst maintaining this passion for the arts, she moved on to explore Designing Ladie's Clothing & Textiles. She had her first Shop in Grafton St at the tender age of 25 and also worked for many years designing and manufacturing under her own label before moving to Javea in Spain, opening and managing her own Art & Interior Design Company 2-Casa.
