As a working artist Michel Petersen at times resembles a 3D printer, downloading from another dimension; only her intellect is not at the helm, rather her hands are operated by an unseen force; and so she creates blissfully in the dream time; however, there is a darker side where Michel struggles to master her exacting craft in a harsher less forgiving world. So back and forth she journeys between interpreting and learning, intuiting and perceiving; always ebbing and flowing between the two chambers of her bicameral mind.
Born in England, 1955. Petersen has a BA with Honors, Specialization in Education/Studio arts from Cal State Northridge, an MFA with Distinction, Specialization in Public Art Ceramic Intallations. She had also been a Visiting Scholar at the Jingdezhen Ceramics Institute, in Jiangxi Province, China.
