BELIEVING EYE
 

CAREER SUPPORT & WRITING
FOR ARTISTS

I offer strategic and editorial support to help artists hone the strengths of their vision towards a rewarding and sustainable career.

 

I am driven by the understanding that an artist's path to success requires perseverance, constant ingenuity, and believing eyes – those people we know and trust who see our unique abilities and reflect this vision back to us.

Michelle has a rare ability to look at art problems from all angles. Her decades-long experience as an artist, curator, and art worker, grants her an invaluable 360-degree perspective.

 

I have been working with Michelle on art and book projects, grant writing, my artist statement, and website re-design. Her skill to oscillate between the micro and the macro reveals solutions quickly, taking into account every aspect of the art world. She has helped me tremendously in bringing to light the hidden aspects of my practice.
