Mikaela Fuchs (pronounced Fox) is an artist and a baker currently living in Augusta, Georgia. She spends her time baking desserts and bread for a local restaurant and farmers’ market, and doing free-lance illustration and design work.
After earning a degree in studio art from Virginia Tech, Mikaela interned in NYC for the International Arts Movement and Brickhouse Ceramic Center. In the summer of 2009, Mikaela married Eric Fuchs and moved to Augusta, where she has been doing free lance art and design work for local bands, brides and businesses, honing her screen printing skills, and baking.
Mikaela is inspired by mythology, cut-away books, nature, magical realism, folk-art and children’s book illustration. Her work creates an intimate relationship between viewer and art; it tells a story and pulls the viewer in. Detailed and unexpected, it demands a second examination.
