Michelle Thompson

Romsey VIC

I am a photographer based in the Macedon Ranges, Victoria.  Being surrounded by extraordinary farming landscapes, that inspires my work on a daily basis.

My work explores the use of light and  shadow to explore  ordinary objects in new ways.  The work often investigates the use of abstraction to reinterpret the object.

About Michelle Thompson

I have always been creative – knitting, sewing and crocheting as a child.  I made my first piece of clothing when I was eight and I became addicted to making things.

Growing up and work, study and family swamped my life.  Until one day, I read an article about a new Nikon camera – I was in love.  Not knowing one end of the camera from the other, I spent very spare moment taking photos, reading books and attending photography groups to learn everything I could.

Then I started to draw and paint.  I became enamoured with colour and creating the unusual.  On the prompting from my husband, I enrolled in a Bachelor of Fine Art through Open University Australia and learnt so much.

Having recently completed my Bachelor of Fine Art focussing on photography, I decided that I would take my studies one step further and undertake Honours.  Another 2 years of study but I totally love it – enjoying learning and exploring my art practice further.

Exciting News….

I can’t believe it.  Once again, I was shortlisted for the Australian Photography Magazine’s Photo of the Year, 2020 award.   Two years in a row – absolutely fantastic.

And, my work, Spider Web has been shortlisted for the Emerging Artist at the Ravenswood Womens Art Prize 2020.

Since then, my work Jupiterous was shortlisted for the Mullens Australian Contemporary Photography Prize for 2020.

The work, Feather, was recently awarded the Bronze Award in the Rise International Photography Awards.
