Available From Artist:
Michele-lee is currently unavailable for corporate commissions, however she is still considering a limited number of private commissions. Her website, Dreams of Gaia, offers a range of original artworks, open and limited edition prints, bookmarks and collectable art cards.
Michele-lee Phelan, at age 39, has been painting professionally for only a handful of years after many told her a career in art was an unattainable dream. However, Michele-lee believes that some dreams are more than just dreams; they are destiny, and it was her destiny to become an illustrator of both mythology and fantasy.

The last seven years have been spent developing her bold, colourful style. Michele-lee loves to paint dragons, faeries, goddesses, gods, heroes and heroines. Her paintings are created using a blend of acrylics and coloured pencils upon heavy 100% cotton watercolour paper.
Michele-lee is currently signed as an illustrator to Australian publisher, Blue Angel Galleries, owned and operated by fellow Australian artist, Toni Carmine Salerno. Over the last year she has painted a series of 45 artworks based upon Greek mythology for a new soon to be released oracle deck. Now completed, she will commence work upon her own 'Dreams of Gaia tarot and put the final touches to 'Dreams of Magick' - her first 'art' book - both also to be published by Blue Angel in 2009/10.
Other artworks by Michele-lee have been included in the new 'Oracle of the Dragonfae' by Lucy Cavendish, and have graced the covers of the four book series 'Ancient Mirrors Tale' by American fantasy author, Jayel Gibson. Her original artworks have become part of private collections throughout Australia, Europe, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
