About me

Art is the stored honey of the human soul.

Michelle Douglas is a surf artist and surfer based near Cape Town, South Africa. She gained an incredible love for surfing when she met her husband, Isaiah, who taught her to surf in 2004. She constantly searches for new ways of expressing her love for the ocean and knew her desire to communicate this love could also be achieved through her art. Michelle attended Mactrain Multimedia College to study Graphic Design in 2000 but it was only in later in October 2010 that she decided to learn to paint. Michelle continually pursues and fine tunes her artistry by exploring the ocean to capture God's majestic creation. She draws her inspiration from her own photography and surfing. Her pursuit is to portray the roaring ocean with it’s moods, movement and colour. Michelle’s paintings are completed with oil paints and/or acrylics of the highest quality and enjoys mixed media too. Each art piece is painted with care and is unique to her style of painting. Please contact Michelle for Prints, Commissions or any artistic work you require.
