Michaela studied fine art and knew it was what she wanted to do professionally – but that was over 20 years ago. Before a teaching career, before children, before family life took her to New York, London and Dublin.
In 2010, with her three daughters at school, she finally had time to rediscover her art, and began painting landscapes where, even if fleetingly, she found serenity and peace of mind.
Many of these landscapes were on Suffolk’s Heritage Coast and in October 2013 she moved with her family from London to Suffolk where she is now a full time artist.
Her latest collection is entitled Ataraxis, the presence of calm and quiet.
After it was first shown at the Curious Duke Gallery in Clerkenwell, London, in 2013, Ataraxis was showcased at The Workshop, Snape Maltings, Snape, Suffolk, in August 2014.
Since her first Suffolk exhibition Michaela has sold a number of paintings privately, undertaken several commissions, and is now represented by Cobbold and Judd Fine Art.
In 2015, Michaela exhibited at the Aldeburgh Festival, as part of an exhibition by Cobbold and Judd Fine Art.
