Michelle Caithness

Painter Michelle Caithness graduated from the Department of Drawing at Victoria College Prahran in 1991 and completed a Masters of Visual Art at Monash University in 2018.
Her paintings are underpinned by a substantial knowledge of drawing and a desire to explore
imagery within the range of figuration to abstraction. Caithness has exhibited in over twenty group and solo exhibitions. She has been a finalist in awards including The Dobell Drawing Prize, The Kedumba Drawing Award and winner of the second place Warnibald Art Prize at Warrnambool Art Gallery.
Michelle Caithness had initial links with Tacit more than 20 years ago - her first exhibition, Furl, was hosted by Tacit at the Thornbury premises in 2002.
