Petra Micklethwaite is a talented and versatile emerging artist, whose work does not sit easily within the confines of a particular style. Her interest in history, and its reflection in art, certainly contribute to this diversity of output but she attributes it also to her curiosity about different creative processes. What matters most to her is the ability to convey a feeling or an idea using a visual language. Her work is powerful, substantial, and conveys a strong sense of atmosphere.
Petra's professional art career began in her mid-twenties. She took time out to study business and after that, her creative life had to be balanced with a demanding work schedule. Her love for art did not diminish and she carried on visiting galleries around the world and collecting art. From late 2018 she has focused on studying and producing art full time.
