Michelle was born in Asheville, NC with a deeply rooted “maker” heritage. She developed a love of art, nature, travel + spirituality which greatly inform the foundation of her work. Influenced by her mother + grandmother, she has been using her hands + imagination since she was a child to create artful objects. Her work often reflects colors + patterns found in nature where she spent much of her childhood with her dad, who was an avid-outdoorsman. She enjoys a clean, abstract aesthetic using mainly water-based mediums, paper + natural fibers. In almost all of her work you will see her intrigue with the opposing forces of dualism. Her works are spiritual + reflective outpourings that she tries to nurture daily. Faith + family are her highest priorities so, she works from her home studio in Sullivan’s Island, SC where both peaceful + joyful inspiration are found. She resides there with her beloved husband, 2 loving teenage boys + their lazy yellow lab. Her work has been seen throughout the Southeast + licensed in worldwide markets.
