artist's bio

michelle heron was born and raised in norwich, but lives and works in london. her work has always been inspired by the suburban landscape she grew up in: bungalows, alleyways, shops, garages. recording the mundane, the quotidian and the overlooked.

recent works are inspired by the increasingly genericized and branded landscape, recording london’s socially and historically important buildings including disappearing old shop-front typography. paintings consist of a mixture of materials including plaster, sand and fabric, which make useful again the surfaces altered by the passage of time and often, by neglect.
