As an Internationally collected, multi award winning traditional and digital artist, Michelle is one of the very few - if any - Portrait Photographers in Australia who is able to offer exclusive, one of a kind, original hand painted Masterpiece Portraits to her photography clients.   Unlike most other studios who offer painted portraits, these mixed media paintings are personally hand painted by Michelle using the highest quality acrylic and oil paints available - they are not outsourced to unknown artists around the world.

Due to the time required to create these portraits, a strictly limited number of commissions for these paintings can be accepted each year and they are exclusive to Private photography clients.

To secure your original hand painted portrait, please contact Michelle without delay.


Half and Full Day commercial photography sessions for Studs, Farms and other businesses are individually tailored to suit your specific needs.

Rates include Commercial Use Licence for selected images.
