BIO/CV Michala Brincker
I have a Multimedia Computing Art & Business education and a BBA in International Business & Marketing – and dozens of graphic courses and numerous photo shoot lessons. It has taken years to arrive at where I am now, and it’s still a lot of fun!
I absolutely love what I do - and I am so grateful that the universe has been so kind to me.
Also a big thank you - to you for showing interest in my art.
My childhood & life (inspirations/influences):
I discovered my passion for photography and drawing at a very young age. My father had a number of Leica cameras that I was allowed to play with, my Godfather was a successful photographer and my mother was a graphic designer. My mothers uncle Finn Carlsen (a Danish sculptor, ceramicist and painter) inspired me to start working with clay.
My parents were full of energy and they involved me in so many interesting things.
I grew up in a wonderful, creative and adventurous family and throughout my childhood I sailed in the Swedish archipelago where the Northern light is breath taking and inspiring. I have spent every summer holiday with my family in our beautiful summerhouse where drawing, playing and building rafts and tree houses were part of my daily life. During the winter we went skiing in the French Alps where I started experimenting with my camera. As a contrast to the liberal and creative environment I enjoyed at home, I attended an international school in Copenhagen run by Catholic nuns. I have lived in many countries and I speak Danish, Swedish, English, German and French.
My late grandfather Per Carlsen founded a publishing company, focusing on comics and children’s illustrated books published all around the world so story telling and looking at images have had a great impact on my life. Perhaps that is where my fascination with images, photography, painting and playing with colours comes from.
At the age of 21 I survived a severe accident which took years of training to recover from. It was a very hard time but also a gift, as it made me look at life in a very different way. I think that my dedication to my art is due to what has happened to me in the past, the present and to what the future holds... Sometimes life can be challenging, but I feel very privileged that I can dedicate my time in my own little creative world. So welcome to my world :-)
My job is my hobby and life is my inspiration. My kids are the greatest gift in life, they inspire me every day and help me look at the world through different eyes. I love my husband, kids, family and friends, So beside my art and my family, I also love sailing. I think that the sea has had a huge influence in who I am and how I work. The sea fills me up with so much energy and so many ideas. Diving, traveling, interior design are also great passions of mine. I also love the nature and its inhabitants - but I am very concerned about the future of our earth. I think that is why I try to make my animals in my art as human as possible to show my audiens that they have souls too. I really love creating art that inspire people. Love, compassion, justice and humor are some of the topics that I use in my art pieces. Every artwork tell’s it’s own story, normally with at twist of humor.
I'm always on the look out for new opportunities to display my art around the world, so let’s see what 2020 will bring me!
