It all started when... junior high school, an art teacher encouraged Michelle to take additional drawing classes at the Cleveland Institute of Art. So, Michelle's Mom enrolled her in Saturday morning life drawing classes...and Michelle was hooked. Michelle knew she wanted to be an "artist", not knowing all the different possibilities that entailed. When she landed a job as Product Designer, for an American Greetings subsidiary, Michelle realized she had found her passion.

Michelle has been designing and illustrating for over 30 years....wait....what...really...over 30 years! Yes, believe it or not!! And over those years, it has been MIchelle's goal to delight clients with a creative approach to everyday subject matter and bring smiles to people’s faces. Her images and designs are passionate, colorful and whimsical.

Michelle lives in a small suburb of Cleveland with her two dogs and....hold on to your hats....four cats. Don't worry, it is not as crazy as it sounds!!!
