Michele Webber was born in Middlesex, England in 1967 and currently lives with her partner and teenage daughter in Suffolk.
As a child, Michele spent all her spare time reading novels and drawing pictures, usually in biro of animals and ‘80’s pop stars. Education was interrupted by frequent family house moves and her desire to become an artist was discouraged firmly by the school’s careers officer who told her to learn to type. Michele learned to type and worked in a wildly varying array of jobs for the next 10 years. Like many women, a break to have a baby gave her time to assess her own life and wonder what happened to the child who wanted to be an artist. A choice was made, more than a choice, and unshakeable decision that from now on she would work as an artist and simply not listen to doubters.
Turning to local botanical artist Christopher Ryland for tuition, an affinity to watercolours was discovered. Michele’s work now includes printmaking, mixed media and mosaic; she has studied under several professional artists and still learns from other artists, some of whom are now good friends, as well as from her own students, whose creativity never ceases to amaze her. Watercolour remains her favourite medium; subjects visited frequently are nature and the coast; her work displaying a love of colour and a comprehensive knowledge of technique.
Working from her garden studio with Gimlet the cat for company, Michele is now a published illustrator, and regularly exhibits in galleries and open exhibitions. She now teaches her own students via classes, courses and private tuition. Michele is a professional associate of the SAA (Society for All Artists) and a member of several art societies, including the Colchester Art Society, SoEAW (Society of East Anglian Watercolourists) and the Gainsborough’s House Printmakers. Looking forwards, Michele seeks to improve standards, both in her own artistic practice and her teaching, and explore her increasing enjoyment of writing about art and rising to the challenges that the digital age throws at her.
‘All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.’
