Michelle Foley

Michelle Foley is a multi-disciplinary artist with a passion for botanical exploration, mental awareness, and material experimentation. Her works often incorporate natural elements, such as the manipulation of growing grass, as well as unconventional materials to create thought-provoking pieces that blur the boundaries between art and nature.

From a young age, she was fascinated by the natural world, and her curiosity about the environment led her to pursue an education in Art and Horticulture. Through her studies, Foley gained a deeper understanding of the intricate relationships between plants, art and their surroundings.

Foley’s interest in mental awareness stems from her personal experiences with anxiety and depression. She believes that art can be a powerful tool for healing and self-expression, and often incorporates themes of mindfulness and self-protection into her work.

She enjoys exploring the properties of different materials, from traditional mediums like paint and clay to unconventional materials like recycled cans and found objects. Her work often pushes the boundaries of what is traditionally considered "art," challenging viewers to rethink their ideas about creativity and materiality.

Through her art, Foley seeks to inspire others to connect with the natural world, cultivate mental awareness, and embrace the creative potential of unconventional materials.
