About the artist:
Michelle is a technology geek by day and artist in the evenings. She grew up in Massachusetts where she was surrounded by the ocean but now lives in Arizona where she is surrounded by the desert. She dabbles in different media: glass blowing, life drawing, papermaking, letterpress and photography just to name few. She now uses a Vandercook press and at times handmade paper to create limited edition books. Her work is meant to bring a little whimsy and light into a world that can be a dark and dangerous place.
