About this pro

Fundamentals are necessary and I can teach them. I have had the opportunity to learn from the best and I love to share that knowledge and experience. Tell me your goal, and I will help you create a plan to achieve that goal with the right lessons and exercises. And you'll have fun getting there. 

Helping people overcome their frustration to find joy in art is highly rewarding.

  • Susan Ring

    I'm so lucky to have found Michelle. She's teaching me Photoshop and not only does she know her stuff, but she's so patient -- often talking me off a ledge when I get frustrated. And she's fun to be around. Great experience and I highly recommend her.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We'll discuss goals and dreams and figure out the best way to achieve them.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

By fifth grade, I could draw a likeness of other students as models in Art class. At thirteen, I was able to spend my first summer studying art and drawing at Swain School of Design. I majored in art and design the last two years of high school and went on to graduate from Parsons School of Design in NYC with a BFA in Illustration. I have learned from the best instructors and can relate those lessons directly to you.
