The creative process for Michelle begins with listening for what's fundamentally authentic so that she can unearth what's distinctly meaningful, remarkable and fresh. She hears what others often miss, resulting in her ability to produce award-winning and deceptively simple creative work. Equally rewarding to the work of shaping a creative direction is the time she spends as a graphic designer for print collateral, logos, cohesive rebrands and websites. There's no rest for the inherently creative, so Michelle's talents never get racked at the end of a workday. The curiosities she nabs on Saturday morning pilgrimages to antique shows and rummage sales, from vintage deer statues to moving hula dancers, are a source of playful inspiration. On Hey Peanut, she blogs about crafts, photography, jewelry and the fun diversions of her two little girls.
