Michaela Smith

I am a Fine Artist that enjoys experimenting with many mediums, often returning to watercolours, collage and digital art.

My main project, Is This My Face?, explores the mental afflictions that Body Dysmorphia has on the mind. Through my artwork, I document the thoughts and feelings I have personally experienced which involve the common reoccurrence of the question, “Is this my face?” as Body Dysmorphia mentally distorts my own image.

My strengths and skills lie heavily within watercolours, collage, and drawing as these are the mediums I most enjoy. However, I do appreciate the opportunity to experiment and develop new skills within different materials such as digital art, photography, and sculpture.

My aims for the future are to keep improving my skills and start a small business selling my artwork.
