Michelle Grant

Hi my name is Michelle Grant; I live in Mackay in Nth Queensland.
I have been creating and designing for over 20 years. I have been on many design teams both in Australia and Internationally and have been published in many magazines over the years.
I love sharing my passion and have been inspiring other creatives to embrace their inner artists teaching all around the country, including on a cruise in 2017.
My creative endeavors include mixed media, art, drawing, art journaling, scrapbooking and more. I get excited about exploring and discovering new techniques and ideas and creating unique pieces from the heart.
I am currently designing paper collections with stamps, stencils, and dies for Bee Arty Australia. My latest venture has been designing and selling downloadable art images for art journaling on my website with many new things coming along with new online classes, quests and more coming in 2021.
It is an exciting time to be a creative at the moment and I can’t wait to share this creative journey with you all.

I have been product educator for a number of Australian and overseas manufacturers including, Colour Blast, Ranger Industries, and ColourArte.

Over the years, I have had the privilege of teaching both around Australia and internationally.  I have had my work published in many magazines and been a member of many international and Australian design teams.
