Dr Grafix (aka Munted Doll aka Dr Michelle Frantom) is a career visual artist. I’ve always loved drawing. Moving into digital media 12 years ago opened up a vast new world.
Currently I work part-time as a sessional academic for Curtin University and lecture in art at a maximum security prison. Before that I lectured in drawing, Photoshop and creative thinking at TAFE for over 10 years.
I surf the cold southern ocean as often as I can. Want to know more? Meet Michelle Frantom here at Illustrators Australia.
In 2013 I completed a PhD (Doctor of Creative Arts) at Curtin University. A creative PhD has 2 components – a 40,000 word thesis and a body of artwork that I exhibited at John Curtin Gallery. The written component was based on Jung’s ‘active imagination’ in relation to The Gap – a spectacular wild-site on the south coast of Western Australia.
You can download my thesis ‘Her Beauty and Her Terror: Portrait of an Archetypal Land’ for free at Academia.edu.
