Michelle Bothwell was born in Northern Ireland where she studied 'Art and design' at Limavady College. She later went on to obtain a BA (Hons) degree in 3D Design at the 'University of Ulster' in Belfast. Since then she has become a wife and mother of three children. She continued however to produce paintings from her studio at home and has now decided to make them accessible to the public due to much interest. All of her paintings are hand embellished with Swarovski crystals. They lend to a more contemporary feel while capturing a sense of glamour and sophistication.
