Michelle Smith


I am a graphic designer, illustrator, photographer, videographer, web designer that is typically inspired by nature and how nature can be seen in the urban environment. I grew up on a mountain. There I was introduced to nature from a very young age. The textures, the colors, the smells are all deeply imputed into my being which has become apart of my art. I see what many others overlook. Sometimes this keen observation is a curse, but it is mostly a blessing. I look at the world around me and try to figure out how to draw that, how to photograph that, how to capture the beauty that nature creates so easily. I do not remember when I started drawing or when I was introduced to a camera or a computer. Art is like breathing, its what I do. Its not that I need to do it to survive, but it’s a habit that lets me survive.

I have a Bachelor's degree. I have over 10 years of experience with Photoshop and Illustrator. Additionally, I have extensively used InDesign, Dreamweaver, After Effects and many other adobe products for the last several years along with Autodesk's Maya, 3Ds Max and Sketchbook. I have also used many of Google's Apps including Earth, SketchUp and many others.
