My work is all about IDENTITY. I am Maltese, made up from a combination of nationalities and I always wondered in which box I should fit… till I got to the stage where I realised I was trying to map my identity on others.
A dedicated professional with an enviable track record in the education sector. Throughout her professional career she has painted and shared her work with her audience. Then in 2015 she was able to transition to a full-time artist. Since then, she has exhibited several times in Malta and London. Michelle (Mixa painting) is a narrative artist. Her work develops through the stages of: reflection, research, contemplation, experimentation and finally production. The work always intertwines color and layers to reflect subjects which are core to her. Mixa’s paintings illustrate a richly personal insight.
