Michaela French is a visual artist working in the areas of time-based media and fine arts. Colour, light and movement are fundamental to her work which ranges from projected image environments to narrative film, from live performance to fine art exhibition. Her work incorporates moving image, animation, compositing and projection as well as traditional techniques of painting, printmaking, illustration and graphic and spatial design.
Michaela is a lecturer and researcher in the School of Creative Arts at the University of Hertfordshire. She lectures in the areas of moving image production, motion design, animation and visual art. Her current art practice and research investigates the experience of wonder as a point of intersection between art, science and consciousness.
Michaela has a particular interest in the point of intersection between the visual arts and other disciplines, and as such has spent much of the last ten years working collaboratively in the areas of live performance, dance, planetaria and spatial design.
