Michelle Hiscock trained at the Canberra School of Art, Australian National University, graduating in 1991. Her early work, of small but powerfully evocative landscapes, was well received by both collectors and critics, and she has continued since then to develop her pictorial language, exploring the traditions of classical landscape from a contemporary perspective. Both her practice and her research have informed the lectures and master classes for which she is widely known at the National Art School and the Art Gallery of NSW. Michelle has lived in Japan and France and travelled widely in Europe and especially Italy. She has held solo exhibitions in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, has been a finalist in several art prizes, and has taken part in group shows around Australia as well as in London and Switzerland. Her work is represented in private and corporate collections.
