About Michelle Harvey

Hello! The story so far ...

I am a Melbourne-based artist, creating atmospheric and emotionally charged landscapes.

I love this space. It represents a creative pivot from running a business to becoming a practicing artist. I turned to my art practice full time during lockdowns as a way to process the grief of unexpectedly losing my Dad and the monumental changes to how I operated my small business.

In 2005 I built Crayon Chick from scratch selling handmade designs from craft markets and eventually moving to a retail and wholesale business attending design and trade shows in Australia, New Zealand, London and the US.

I am now fully based in my home studio, offering a core collection of my designs online here and painting intuitively from memory, of places that live in my heart and connecting with how nature makes me feel.
