Michelle is a self-taught illustrator and designer who is fueled by cookies and naps.
She got her first computer when she was 16 and she hasn’t stopped working since. Her influences include Mid-Century, Japanese, and Scandinavian design and pretty much anything cute.
Michelle created her line, Crowded Teeth, in 2004 and continues to create characters and products under that name, designing her brand into socks, t-shirts, bags & earrings for cool labels such as Lounge fly and Hello Kitty.
Publisher Creatives Inc. spotted her hanging out on the internet and she amazingly hadn’t already been published in greetings card format. They snapped her up and she is now one of their [and our] best selling card artists.
She currently resides in Los Angeles with her husband Jason whose beard she has tattooed onto the inside of her arm, and their two cats, Hurts and Morgan. When she isn’t working she spends her time eating good food, hugging her friends, playing video games, and crafting.
She is also features in 2 new books in addition to being out & about in the LA scene.
