My name is Michelle, and I’m a Scorpio who fell in love with a Scorpio and made a little Taurus. I was born and raised in Florida but ended up working on and very quickly falling in love with a little island 30 miles out to sea. I went to Ringling College of Art and Design and received my BFA in Illustration. My dream is to make my own children’s book (or two).
I met Zak in the Lily Ponds, drinking malt liquor out of a guitar case. We danced and played for awhile before falling in love. Then we traveled for a bit on the West Coast together, coming back to Nantucket to work for a summer, only to start our Fall living on a school bus and traveling some more. We grew a little baby boy with lots of avocado and eggs and he was born at home the following Spring on the bed in our Sconset home on our little island. He was born ten pounds, and named Odin Rainer Bahamut.
I make things; dolls, portraits, toys, and other bits. Zak is a farmer. We want to start our own orchard one day soon.
