Michelle C. Moode is a mixed media artist currently living in Spruce Pine, North Carolina. She makes books, bookish objects, complicated installations, and draws lots of pictures. She has exhibited nationally, and has taught a variety of Printmaking, Drawing, and Bookbinding classes, both in university and workshop settings.
Michelle grew up in Southern California, and spent her high school and college years in Murray, Kentucky. She received her BFA from Murray State University in 2003, and an MFA in Printmaking from West Virginia University in 2007. Through the years she has also learned things at the Penland School of Crafts, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and Frogmans Print and Paper Workshops.
