Hi! I’m Michelle of Many Trades.
I never knew what to define myself as - which is where "MichelleofManyTrades" comes from. I've moved more times and had a longer list of jobs than most. However, I've always made my home by creating a creative existence.
I am a thriving artist due to my deep dig into self discovery, shadow work, therapy, meditation, medication, cannabis, and connection. I am a creator looking for other collaborators, parents, and weirdos driven to learn and grow! I seek to create authentic connections, help people find their creative voice, and to deepen my gratefulness practice.
Current mediums of interest: screenprinting, stained glass, painting, alcohol inks, and small loom works.
Becoming a parent in 2014, started a shift that took until 2019 to reach a major fruition. Having a child forces you to deal with your unresolved thoughts, needs, and goals in addition to encouraging you to process PTSD, trauma, and chronic pain issues head on. I am so thankful for my exposure to great books and therapeutic modalities. Feel free to message me if you'd like to connect about this!
Also, when you buy or support my creative endeavors, I donate portions of my proceeds to groups listed on my “Art for Good page” - if you think I should know about a different or more direct way to benefit those in need – please reach out!
