Michelle Hamer maps contemporary social beliefs, ideals, fears and aspirations through text and urban environments. Her hand stitched and drawn works capture in-between moments that characterise everyday life and are based on photographs she’s taken and found text.

Despite Michelle planning out her art education as a child she ended up becoming an architect, but a change in her health led her back to art again. In this episode we discuss becoming a professional artist without going to art school, and how she’s built her career and community from nothing.

We also talk in depth about Michelle’s research trip to the American/Mexican and Israeli/Palestinian borders. Plus resilience, self promotion, her success in receiving grants, and what she’s learnt about grant writing along the way.
