BIO

Perth artist Michelle Fisher, known as Monday, places ethereal beauties in surreal settings as a fantastical representation of her every day.  Her work takes inspiration from folktales and the parallels that can be drawn between old tales and modern life. Influenced by illustrators of the Golden Age, Renaissance painters and the delicate works of traditional Chinese paper cutting, she creates dream-like worlds for her female characters as a way of illustrating her own hopes, fears and daydreams.
