I’m Michelle Wade, a South African artist, illustrator and ceramic sculptor creating art from the beautiful natural landscape of the Yorkshire Dales.

I create art inspired by nature; the intricate patterns of a seed pod; the spirit and personality of an animal; the wisdom and strength of a tree. I hope that my art inspires more awareness and love for the beauty of nature and helps to nurture a need for conservation.

Illustration & Art

Every illustration or artwork is inspired by my experiences in NATURE; somewhere spectacular that I have visited, something fascinating that I have seen or an interesting story I have been told…

Ceramic Art

Each ceramic piece I create becomes precious to me, inspired by my love of animals, seed pods, birds, trees. There is a kind of magic in creating ceramic sculpture for as I complete the finishing marks to each piece they come alive and exist as a new creature that wasn’t there before.
