MachiMela Art

 Bio

Michaela Ivancova, also called MachiMela, is a passionate artist that finds inspiration in nature and personal experiences. She focuses on depicting events from her personal life and her own states of mind. Her past experiences and opportunities had guided her in this direction allowing her art to tell her story.

Michaela is a graduate of Presov University in Slovakia with a Major in Fine Arts. As part of her studies, she also attended Shenzhen University and Rzeszow University in order to get broader views of art scenes in the world.

Coming to Whistler opened many possibilities for her artistic visions. Mountains and animals became her new inspirations which she depicts in various media.


I am creating customized wooden pieces or other mixed media works. Wooden inlays, pyrography, acrylics and epoxy are my main mediums.

I believe that traditional art and discipline can still make a difference in how we perceive the world.
