Hello and welcome to my website! I'm Michaela, an aspiring CG character & creature animator, traveler and passionate snowboarder from Austria. I'm an alumni of Animation Mentor and the University of Applied Sciences Hagenberg, Austria.
Ever since I can remember I've been a big fan of cartoons and animated movies. The Looney Tunes characters were my childhood heroes. Deep in my heart I always dreamed of being able to do something like that for a living one day.
Doing Animation Mentor after university was the best decision I ever made. Not only did it help me to refine my animation skills and excessively broaden my knowledge about things like the principles of animation, body kinetics, laws of physics or timing, it also introduced me to a whole new world of like-minded people who have become like a second family to me. I now have friends all over the world and I can't find words that even closely express how happy that makes me.
I can't wait to be part of a team of talented artists who share the same passion and challenge each other to learn and grow each an every day.
I'm currently available for work and also willing to relocate. Please take a look at my showreel and feel free to me for more information about myself, my work or job offers. Thanks for your time.
