"Starting over isn't always pretty. It’s like Autumn when the trees drop their leaves, it feels like everything is dying ,but you and I know how beautiful Autumn colours really are, and we know that this must happen so they can bloom again. Sometimes we have to grow and let go of stuff we hold on to, so we can renew our selves to be able to bloom again" - MM
Known as "Dolly" to her many thousands of followers through social media, Michelle Mackie is a well known and highly accomplished photographer. Having spent many years perfecting her digital based skills, manipulating her own photography & using source material that is totally unique, the end results are really quite special and unlike anything else we have seen.
Michelle's abilities & extensive following have led her to be contacted by fashion models from all over the globe, asking for her time to carry out their own shoots for inclusion within their professional portfolios. We can see something very special in Michelle's works and have every faith that she could be a very big name to look out for in the very near future.
As a photographer, digital artist and visual story teller, it is with these tools that Michelle has been able to explore her own psyche, recreating forgotten joys and life’s loves, whilst vanquishing past tragedies and trauma.
“I’m forever daydreaming, and I get to create some of what goes on in my busy little head for all to see”
What started off as a hobby and an escape of sorts for this busy working mum soon became much more. In 2014 Michelle was asked to exhibit her work in a local gallery, It was this that forged her on to build her skills and passion, which lead to finding her own unique style. By combining the power of nightmares and the magic of fairytales Michelle presents her inner-self; her memories, fears and dreams in an art form that can provoke powerful emotions and connect with people in ways she never Imagined.
Before considering reaching for her camera, every project is meticulously pre-conceptualized, and only when the piece is thoroughly planned does the work begin. A location is sourced, and a model chosen, props are chosen to give extra symbolism within the work, wardrobe is picked and angels from which shots need taken are already written down in one of her many note pads. Once Michelle has all she needs its time to get creative digitally, stitching photo’s together using layers and layer mask’s, before getting to work on her textures and colour pallet that give that extra surreal tones. Michelle uses her creative streak to find beauty in dark place’s.
