About Michelle

By day I'm a Creative Director in the advertising industry. By night, I satisfy that itch to make, express, and bring my passions to life. Falling in love with watercolor was an unexpected surprise. It was not a medium I ever thought I'd be comfortable with. But it forces me to be decisive and to trust my gutβ€”a lesson well worth learning.

My work is often focused on the details. All those little lines and shadows and shapes that come together to form something realistic and beautiful is immensely satisfying. I have always found beauty in less likely places and I love to invite viewers of my work to see that beauty in something that might have otherwise been over looked.

I studied graphic design at Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia and advertising at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh.
