Growing up in a military family and being the new kid in a classroom at least 16 times has given Michelle a unique perspective on the world. Experiencing the subculture in each new place nourished the love of pop culture, so evident in her work today. She received her BFA from the Corcoran College of Art and Design, in Washington DC.

Her energetic personality, eye for color, details and clean graphic style lends itself to a variety of subject matters, whether it's an entertainer, pro wrestler, CEO, teenager or the family pet. She recently began shooting motion; a jump that came naturally and well suited her stylized approach to visual story telling.

She lives in New York City with her husband James, affenpinscher Pepito and kitty Baby Olive.

In her spare time Michelle likes to sing karaoke. Some of her favorite bands are: The Cure, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds and The Damned. A few other favorite things: roller-skating, surf films, 1970's food mascots and vintage big eye art.
