Artistic Representation: The Art of Michelle Morelan Design

Jacquie Cao Interior Rendered by Michelle Morelan Designs
Designing a room is more than a trip to Pottery Barn. I love nothing more than to browse through the initial design concepts for kitchens, baths, and residential design. This morning I was delighted when I came across the artwork of Michelle Morelan, an illustrator, interior designer, and blogger that also offers rendering workshops. Her sketches are inspirational.

Morelan is a Vancouver based interior designer who adores creating custom drawing available for framing, stationary, and as gifts. She also sells beautiful art card sets at her Etsy shop, too. Her Amsterdam sketch is lovely!

However, her marker and pen illustrations of interiors are just amazing!

She has a beautiful Flickr set that you must visit! Now check out the translation of drawing to room, or vice versa. She really is that good!

I recognize this Kelly Wearstler design anywhere! Michelle does a stunning translation of it.

What does her desk look like? What might we find in her art supplies? Michelle offers amazing visual insight into her process. I love artist materials shots. What a perfect way to end the post!
