Micaela Schettin

Mica was born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She was always surrounded by different types of art, her mom was an actress, her dad a photographer and her sister a musician, she was always either rehearsing scripts with her mom and friends’ actors or listening to her sister practice violin and piano. Mica understood Arts dynamics before she understood herself. She played saxophone at school orchestra from 10 to 16 years old, studied drama for 3 years, went to university in Buenos Aires capital and learned "Body Expression" a branch of dance that analyses body expression as an intervention practice that allows us to find our own language through the study and deepening of the use of the body. After having her daughter at age 17, she took a few years to reconnect with herself in a deeper way, understand the simpler meanings of life and being a teenager mom. Once she was ready to come back to her personal projects, she started experimenting with photography. She took privet photography lessons and learn technique, but she fell in love with the availability of producing a scene, give spotlight to another artist while directing body movement and face expressions. Her photography is subject orientated, very expressive, usually symmetrically framed and bright. She is currently working on a project called “The Shelter s.c.”, a pocket magazine where she curates local to Sunshine Coast, creative content. She is still close to all kinds of arts and aims to always be.
