Hi, I’m Michaela.
I was born in Sydney, Australia, and was painting before I could walk. My favourite childhood photo of myself is holding a paintbrush standing at an easel, wearing a plastic poncho with “I am an artist” printed on it (about age 5, I still remember that it was lime green with black writing and I was using water based paint made from powder!).
Fast forward, I graduated from Sydney TAFE with a certificate of Fine Arts and have dabbled in many different styles of art and crafts since then. In January 2015, I bumped into an awesome YouTube video with mixed media art, and that was it. My art practice became my passion and favorite past time.
I’m a lifelong learner and love to try new techniques and mediums. My primary inspiration and constant colour palette is Australian Mother Nature, her flora and fauna make my heart sing with joy. I also love the Steampunk genre, including grunge, so aspects of that style often sneak into my work.
I began showing my art in 2017 and have not looked back. I’m super excited to join The Crafter’s Workshop International Design Team for 2020-21, and I can’t wait to create some really fun projects for you!
