High Artist Spotlight: Michelle Wickham
Michelle Wickham is an artist living and working in New Haven, CT. After graduating from the University of Hartford with a BA in Art History, she went on to working a series of loosely related odd jobs as well as a short-lived career as a laser engraver in the gun industry.
She has since become a tattoo apprentice at Lovecraft Tattoo in Hamden, CT and hopes to continue supporting herself with her creative endeavors.
She has always been inspired by a smattering of ideas and artists, including but not limited to: Blade Runner, Daniel Clowes, Joost Swarte, Where’s Waldo?, oil spills in the rain and Lisa Frank.
She entered “AI” during High Art 2019.

High Art was created by Dona Frank and The Natural Cannabis Company in 2014 as a crowdsourcing solution to packaging design. From its humble beginnings, High Art has developed into an internationally-known art competition with thousands of entries annually from 100+ countries all over the world.
Each year professional and amateur artists create themed works through a variety of mediums to compete for $50,000 in prize money and to see their work featured on packaging, social media, at the High Art gallery in Santa Rosa, CA and displayed at prestigious art events, in the United States and abroad.
