About this pro

I am a multi medium artist, everything is a Canvas to me. As a child this was clear to me, why should you limit yourself self to creative possibilities. 

I have been a Designer and Sustainable Clothing designer for over 25 years. In 1992 I created MellonHeadDesigns (mchclothingInstagram)(MellonHeadDesigns facebook) Mellon Head Designs is a line of brightly painted Art and Home Decor: Hand painted Furniture, ceramic dinner ware, wall quilts, paintings and textile home accessories. I sell to the whole sale and retail market showing in high end Craft Galleries and Boutiques.

In 2005 I created MMichelle sustainable fashion for women that fuses art, sustainability and fashion. I have loved fashion as long as I've loved art. The fashion world gives me an opportunity to express myself not only on the things I surround myself with but also what I wear. MMichelle is a Collection of original Designs, redesigning, and rebirthing of vintage or Antique Textiles to create unique slow Hand Made fashion in an over saturated market of Fast Fashion.

I enjoy portrait sketching and painting as exercise, like going to th gym. In my teaching career I've drawn close to a thousand drawing of my students over a 15 year period. I have 15 years of teaching experience teaching pre-k to 12th and seniors. My teaching specialty is helping my students to realize how fun and healing art is. " Everyone Coms to The Earth as an Artist " it's what society stripes and eats away from them to make them conform.
