It is my core belief that there is beauty in everybody and every body.
Hi, I'm Michelle.
I'm a Seattle-based artist specializing in creative, intimate portraiture. My work is heavily influenced by the imagery of my childhood in the 90s (think: black and white Calvin Klein ads and those early dancing GAP commercials) in combination with my experience in charcoal figure drawing.
My approach is quite simple: I photograph others the way I would like to be photographed. Recognizing how vulnerable it is on the other side of the camera, I treat each subject with tenderness and the utmost of care. I shoot from the perspective that every last ounce of a person is perfectly delectable-as is. I believe that the way light skims across the skin is art, in and of itself.
I create for the love of it; because I absolutely must.
