Her work has been exhibited and published internationally, and she teaches workshops across the US. Michelle has also been photographing performers, artwork, and community art events, such as the Fremont Solstice Parade, for more than 15 years. She is the second photographer to be chosen to work with Jennifer because of her creative eye, her passion for fine art, and her friendly and fun personality.
