Artist Statement

Michelle Heron is a painter based in London. Her work depicts seemingly ordinary and mundane scenes in the urban environment. Many of her paintings stem from the disappearance of socially and historically important buildings and her love of vintage shop fronts.

Michelle has painted for several public art trails including Books About Town in London, Transport for London’s ‘Year of the Bus’, and more recently Birmingham’s ‘The Big Hoot’.

Michelle has recently been shortlisted for The John Ruskin Prize 2015 and The Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize.
