Painting by Artist Mikaela Sheldt

Mikaela Sheldt is a process based painter, performance poet, and surf photographer. Whether she is painting, performing, or swimming in the surf with her camera, Sheldt captures an intensity of feeling that mirrors her experience of the world as a woman with autism. She works from a personal place drawing on universal emotional experiences to bridge the divide between herself and the outside world. Mikaela’s work is an invitation to engage through the dynamic and shared experience of simply being human. Mikaela has quite literally been drawing inspiration from the Laguna de Santa Rosa. Her sketches, paintings, and drawings reflect upon the time she has spent immersed in its dynamic and vibrant ecosystem.
