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 evident in each new place nourished the love of pop culture, so evident in her work today. Michelle creates clean graphic images showcasing colorful larger than life people of all ages, sizes, and shapes. She recently made her video directorial debut with her latest personal project, “OtherWorldly SoulMates”. The jump to motion came naturally to her and suited her stylized approach to visual story telling. Along with her energetic personality, Michelle comes to a shoot armed with top-notch production, an “inspiration packet”, and a killer iPod play list.
Her work has been awarded by the International Photography Awards 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 as well as American Photography 24, 27. Michelle has had numerous group exhibitions both nationally and internationally, most recently at this year’s Photoville’s The Fence, Brooklyn, NY and Slideluck Potshow Panama II, Panama City, Panama.
Michelle received her BFA from The Corcoran College of Art & Design, in Washington, DC. She lives in New York City with her husband James, affenpinscher Pepito, and kitty Baby Olive.
Michelle is represented by Randy Cole Represents.
