Michelle graduated from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design in Denver, Colorado in 1980. She studied outdoor advertising, sign art, billboard art, layout and lettering. Then, she went on to become a billboard artist and sign painter.

As the sign industry evolved, and computerized vinyl lettering transformed the sign business, Michelle went on to explore other options. She started Creative Gift Baskets in Boise and developed three ecommerce sites which sold Idaho products and Idaho themed gift baskets. After nine years in business, she sold her company and felt driven to reconnect with art and began painting with oils. Now Michelle has developed an exclusive technique that speaks to her sole.
