Michaela is a photographer, multi-media artist and yoga instructor. She is a graduate of the Bealart program and the Ontario College of Art and Design. She has been running a portrait photography business here in London for the past 12 years in addition to nurturing her own art practice. Her commissioned works include family and individual portraits, movement portraits for dancers and yoga teachers as well as commercial branding. She photographs using natural light either in studio or on location. Her personal work is a combination of B&W analogue (film, darkroom and pinhole) photography manipulation fused with drawing, collage and multi-media applications. Using double exposures, pinhole photography and post printing manipulation she explores figurative movement, landscape and place. In her studio you will find traditional B&W photography prints, collage and multi-media images, handmade books and pinhole cameras as well as the landscape dioramas she photographs.
