Tell us a little about who you are and what you do...

Hi, I'm Michelle Endersby.  I'm an International rose artist and author of inspiring Art, Gardens and Always Roses Newsletter.  I share inspiring images and words to encourage people to take the time to stop and smell the roses and focus on the beauty that surrounds us.

What does success mean to you, right now?

Contributing to a more positive vision of the world through communicating the universal language of the rose.

What do you love about what you do?

Being able to immerse myself deep inside a rose as I paint it petal by petal.

Photographing roses in rose gardens around the world and discovering interesting stories and beautiful images to share in my newsletter.

What do you find most challenging?

Having too many exciting opportunities and projects to work on and having to choose which ones to focus on.

What's your biggest achievement(s) to date?

Recovering from life threatening emergency brain surgery and exhibiting my paintings in a New York gallery all within the space of two and half years.

What are your hopes and dreams for future success and happiness?

To continue to share a message of hope, beauty and inspiration on the world stage through the subject of the rose.

What's your best piece of advice for others wanting to feel more successful?

Find the one thing that is so inspiring and exciting to you and then focus all of your energy on it and don’t let anything distract or derail you.

Anything else you’d like to add?

I am currently making my first foray into writing fiction having made a start on a novel of transformation set in a rose garden.
