Growing up, Megan Mickael’s family moved constantly: the only space that never changed was her mother’s art studio. This studio became Mickael's safe space, and generated the passion for art that shaped her into the artist she is today. Mickael works in the medium of photography, snapping her documentary images anywhere and everywhere; deeply introspective, at times psychologically charged. Mickael's oeuvre exhibits a broad range of subject matters, yet is all connected by the reverence she feels towards the visual phenomena she experiences at any given moment.
Mickael likes to explore places and spaces that are not viewed as photographically picturesque. Precision matters less to her than producing imagery that piques a viewer’s curiosity and elicits strong feelings. Mickael received a BFA in Painting and Photography from Southern Methodist University’s Meadow School of the Arts. Today, she dedicates herself to her art full-time, and she belongs to the LA Center for Photographic Arts and the Palos Verdes Art Center. Her achievements in photography would not be so if it were not for the time spent in her mother’s studio; in fact, at age eight, she told her mother she would be an artist when she grew up. Mickael never lost sight of this dream, and she still finds fulfillment in expressing herself through art.
