Hailing from New Mexico and Los Angeles, Michelle Tomlinson is an award-winning actress, acting teacher and director.
A 2020 recipient of the bronze Best Director & Best Web/TV Pilot Award for the Palm City Film Festival for her narrative directing debut, Deeply Superficial, Tomlinson loves working behind and in front of the camera.
Tomlinson is in post-production with the documentary she directed titled Edge, which centers around Native American language preservation with producing partner Lori Bowen and former Governor of San Ildefonso Pueblo, James Mountain and the New Mexico Film Foundation.
Projects in development and pre-production include the feature films Portales and The Penny. She's also working on an untitled rom-com she’s writing with Mary McDonald, which is nearing final script.
Working weekly with actors, Tomlinson coaches and teaches actors from ages 8 to 80 and every skill set level. Tomlinson believes in teaching not only the craft of acting and booking acting jobs, but the philosophy and business of what it takes to work in this industry. She uses a holistic approach that she applies in her private acting sessions and workshops.
