Michelle Hothum has been working as an artist since the late 1990s. Inspired by Russian lacquered miniatures, she started by painting miniatures on a variety of shaped wooden objects such as Easter eggs or Christmas ornaments.
While living in St. Petersburg, where she worked on art films for eight years, she also learned the art of etching, which has become her passion and one of her most essential fields of activity.
For some time now, she has been painting illustrations which have appeared in award-winning books.
Her typical subjects are angels, fairies and nature scenes. Living in a beautiful part of Germany, she has been inspired by nature and tries to depict the magic and beauty of the surrounding scenery.
