Transdisciplinary artist Michèle Saint-Michel grew up along the rolling hills and river bluffs of the Missouri River in America’s heartland. Her work is most often in the mediums of moving image and film, digital design and audio, and art books. Many of her works overlap, blend, and defy genre.
Her first illustrated book, “Grief Is an Origami Swan” (Bookshop) was released in 2020. Her next book – in conversation with and deconstruction of Walt Whitman's work, his poetic lineage, and the experience of PTSD – is slated for release in 2021.
Her poetry films have been screened at art galleries and film festivals across the US, UK, Canada, Romania, France, and Germany as official selections. Her latest film work is an experimental documentary suite of short films that explore the symptoms of PTSD.
