Michelle has a wonderfully dry sense of humour. She is also honest – unnervingly so. She understands and speaks about vulnerability in ways that confront, comfort and inspire. Like the most powerful artists, Michelle draws on her own story, insights, observations and struggles. She belongs to that vital and exceptional group of people in our society who see the world as it truly is and play it back to us in compelling, technicolour truth, so that we might collectively be, and do, better. Michelle has only just begun.
