Artwork Description

Oil on canvas

Signed on the back.

Finalist entry in Archibald Prize, Art Gallery of NSW, Australia.

Michelle Heyman is an openly gay athlete who proudly represented Australia at the Rio Olympics in 2016. I approached Michelle about a portrait after we’d both appeared on the LOTL Powerlist and Cosmo Rainbow List, each of which celebrated the most influential and inspiring LGBTQI+ and allied Australians. As a striker for the Matildas and Canberra United, Michelle is one of Australia’s most impressive sportswomen. She is passionate about being a role model for kids and openly speaks out against bullying, encouraging young people to be their authentic selves.

Archibald Prize 2017 exhibition: 29 July – 22 October 2017
