Originally trained as a printmaker and textile artist, Michele Bryant uses a range of mediums to create her work such as hand-drawn maps carved into wood, metal, resin, glass, and oil on board.

Michele’s artwork explores ideas on belonging. Bryant uses plane shapes to illustrate the idea of leaving or returning to a space, but this shape will sometimes overlay a map, demonstrating that the location may journey with the traveller. Symbols of travel and return, and a need for both personal space and the wider community are expressed often in Bryant’s work.

Michele works from her studio in Newtown, Wellington, New Zealand. Commission work accepted.
