After years of creative work in other areas ... interior
design, writing, sewing, jewelry making and far too many other interests,
Michelle discovered her true passion when she was introduced to the
pastel media in 2011. She became completely smitten and has been painting ever
since. Michelle is a native Californian who became a Texas
transplant in 1997. She lives in Austin with her husband and two hilarious dogs
and they have an amazing daughter who lives and works in New York City.
