'Thoughtful, alluring and developed this artist seems to be speaking from life's experiences.'
Mark Widdup,
Cooks Hill Galleries, Director


'Wonderful and contemporary.'
Cherry Hood, Artist


'Romantic stereotypes abound, so that witty environmental statements come as a surprise in these inventive miniatures.'
Jill Stowell, Newcastle Herald


'The artwork goes beyond the clichéd silhouette and is much more than a rendering of a subject matter.
It is not descriptive, and yet it encourages the viewer into its narrative.’
Leo Robba & Rew Hanks, Artists
Brenda May, Director, Brenda May Gallery


'Heibel's splendidly executed work is reminiscent of glass etchings by the late 19th century glass
etcher and illustrator, Mary Gregory. It is distinguished by its whimsy and its political nous.
This dainty work is in fact a scalding comment on the environment.’
Dr Leigh Summers, Director,
Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery


'The work was immediately approachable and though the subject was familiar the image retained a level of mystery and ambiguity.
This was due to what I thought was a considered attention to graphic selection, design and the editing process.
The technique also was well suited and retained an illusive quality that helped transform the subject to a more profound level.
Technically and conceptually realised. Congratulations Michèle.'
Dr Ambrose Reisch,
Artist/Teacher, National Art School

 
'Very strong, as well as charming.’
Dr John Barnes, Director, 
Cessnock Regional Art Gallery

 
'A whimsical and graphic work that has lyrical appeal,
yet a serious environmental message within.’
Sarah Johnson, Curator,
Newcastle Regional Gallery


'This is a perfect composition with balanced use of
both black and off white and the use of a variety of marks and drawing styles.'
Brad Franks, Art Centre Manager
Muswellbrook Art Gallery 


'Dynamic drawing technique that imparts great solidity'
Giles Alexander, Artist
 
 
'The sheer detail is astounding with the framing perfectly complimenting and accentuating each individual piece.'
Naomi Gall, Art Writer
