Hi! I’m Michelle of Many Trades.
Or at least, that is what I called myself before. I'm a multi-hypenate artist maker, parent, and node. I have recently been drawn to the word polymath to describe myself.
I've moved more times and had a longer list of jobs than most. Through this, I've discovered I was always a creator.
I am a thriving artist due to my deep dig into self discovery, shadow work, therapy, meditation, medication, cannabis, and connection. I am queer and non-binary.
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: graphic design, stickers, screenprinting, stained glass, painting, alcohol inks, and gelli printing.
Parenting and living multigenerationally has encouraged me 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!
