Biography

Michelle Carlton was born in Lower Hutt New Zealand in 1991. Since the beginning of her days she dibbled and dabbled in all areas of craft, painting and drawing. As a child she would go to the library to borrow as many creation books as possible. Michelle discovered with just a few pieces of paper, pencils and paint she had the ability to stay focused and entertained for hours.

At the age of 14 Michelle discovered the surrealist genius Salvador Dali; he had the largest influence on her work of any artist to this day. Inspired by metamorphosis and realism Michelle’s work quickly took on a twist of madness and excitement.

She enjoys capturing realistic images focusing on humans, animals and the phantasmagorical. Since writing and illustrating her own children’s book ‘Chumpy The Chameleon’ Michelle has embraced a playful, comical but charming approach to her work while still retaining discipline and accuracy in realism.

She likes to embrace all elements of sight and experiment with visually stimulating imagery. “I aim to create works that are dynamic and eye catching whilst vividly portraying a message.”

Michelle has recently graduated Level 7 Advanced Diploma at the Learning Connexion after three and a half years of study. At Hutt Valley High School 2009 she received 1st equal + Distinction in Art Painting, 1st place + Distinction in Computing and Citation of Merit in Art Design.

Michelle has received two other diplomas from The Learning Connexion, completed an airbrush course run by international Airbrush Venturi - VET- 22018VIC - Certificate II in Airbrushing, she has been nominated for the NZAAT Emerging Artist Award 2013 and has received two Oriel Hoskin art scholarships in the last 2 years.

Michelle has been involved in a number of exhibitions and art displays at a variety of galleries including: St James Theatre, Farsite Gallery, Artrium Gallery, The White Room and X.Design Boutique.

Michelle’s Media: Oil paint, gouache, watercolour, ink, graphite pencil, coloured pencil, mural work, airbrush, and digital media.
