Meet Michelle


I’m Michelle.

I’m born and raised in San Luis Obispo county, with an ardent love of life. My heart is cluttered with my cats, Disneyland, and holidays.

I am inspired by light, the beauty of reality, and the changing scenery from an airplane window.

I have a background in Art History and have closely studied some of the most famous pieces of art in the world.

I’ve found my way into Nylon Magazine while working as a blogger/brand ambassador/photographer for Collection B clothing.

In brief, I'm Christmas and Halloween. I'm a romantic realist, sarcastic cat lady who loves the adorable and the strange.
