IDAL Instructor Biography
Michele is a 15 year veteran of the decorative painting industry practicing her craft in the beautiful homes around the golfing resort community of Pinehurst, North Carolina. Always considering herself equally right-brained and left-brained, Michele enjoys the problem solving aspects of her career as much as she does the “making things pretty” part. She’s constantly scanning her surroundings for items that she can repurpose as tools to create a new finish and attends multiple training courses annually to stay abreast of the latest products and design trends.
In addition to her thriving solo act as a residential decorative artist, Michele has also spent the last three years painting backdrops and crafting props for The NFL Today Show, CBS Sports, the NFL Network, and most recently, the Super Bowl. She’s excited to share her outside-the-box technique and penchant for using and mixing products in unexpected ways to hopefully inspire both new and experienced artists to create innovative finishes that keep the decorative arts industry alive, relevant, and booming in modern era of interior design.
