MMy artistic talents were discovered at the tender age of 5, in Allentown, PA when I was challenged by a TV commercial to "draw this turtle." Soon after, I had my very first art show (thanks for the use of your refrigerator Mom and Dad!).
Since then, I've moved north, and then west, with my husband, our two brilliant daughters, and our loopy dog Lucy. Now, Arvada, Colorado is where I hang my hat... and my jackets, and some pretty nice shirts too.
I love: drawing, eating Oreos (mmmm...), drinking a cuppa PG Tips (the best tea EVER), reading bedtime stories with our girls, and wearing SmartWool socks. I don’t like: that I blush at a drop of a hat, brown rice, mean people, and holes in my SmartWool.
If you like my work, and would like to contact me, please email me at michelle at michellehenninger dot com. Follow me at Twitter: @mehenninger.
