As a student at the Rhode Island School of Design, Michelle learned to hone her creativity. As a graduate she has taken those skills and applied them to her work in advertising, as well as in her home. Unafraid to take on a project, she is always looking for ways to improve her space. Refinishing and repainting furniture that she brings home from vintage stores or flea markets, adding color to her walls and creating custom artwork are just some of the ways that she has personalized her studio on the upper west side of Manhattan.
