"I photograph the beautiful in the every day: the light falling across the face of a statue, the sun rising over the skyline, the moments of quiet. The first camera I ever held was my father’s 1968 Asahi Pentax: I fell in love with the intimacy of viewing life through the lens of a camera. Today, I use both digital and traditional film cameras to capture my images."

Michelle's work has been featured in the Tiberino Memorial Museum, City Hall, the Straube Art Center, the Rosemont School and many other prestigious venues. Her photograph "Sandy Paws" was selected as the cover art for the 2009 Paws for Charity art book project benefitting the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, and her children's book "Alphabet Soup!" featuring her whimsical nursery-themed still life photography has received rave critical reviews. Her artwork hangs in private collections throughout the US and Europe, and her artist blog was featured by Nicole Brewer of CBS Philadelphia:
