Born in a small Australian town in rural Victoria, Michelle has lived and worked in Brisbane for over 20 years. After studying the moving image, she became increasingly drawn to still images, creating works that have the appearance of film stills.

Whilst studying film at university in the early nineties, Michelle was immersed in the transition from analogue cameras and editing equipment to digital. Studying at the time of this technological change meant she was learning both processes within the space of two years. This layered approach shaped Michelle’s aesthetic and she remains passionate about old and new image-making technologies.
