About the Resurrectionist
Born in New York in 1972, and raised in Miami, Michele drew inspiration and education from her mother, Alma. Alma was a home economics teacher, always sewing, cooking, and crafting. Michele made sure to pay attention, and together they produced high quality beaded jewelry.
After losing Alma in 2017, she started to see inspiration in so many more aspects of life, as well as death. While on a local hike in North Port, Michele spotted a small rabbit skull on the ground. The skull was laying in a manner that she could see all of the small ornate nasal passages inside. This perfect pattern was made in nature, and she decided that this beauty needs to be shared.
Three years into sharpening her craft, Michele sits on the board of directors at the North Port Art Center, and has won numerous awards for her meticulous and stunning work. Her contagious enthusiasm has grown to be loved by many. She hopes to inspire future artists to chase whatever creative dreams may come to them. Michele continues to draw inspiration from her mother, in addition to many wondrous displays of nature. With this medium, the sky is the limit, and Michele will continue reaching for the stars!
