|Michelle Bickford–a former graphic designer gone rogue and the daughter of an engineer–utilizes that background to create three-dimensional art with a mid-century modern flair. She uses bold sculptural shapes, mixed with an element of surprise, to convey both her love of abstract forms and her sense of humor. Michelle begins her art by visually translating her sensations and perceptions into “a story with no words”. This sets the tone and creates her goal. She describes it as “visually engineering a solution and then adding an unexpected twist”. This process started when she was a wee tyke building architectural sculptures out of toothpicks, and segued into her present mid-century modern work. "Having grown up with science fiction as bedtime stories, I pull from the thrilling sense of surprise and create worlds of my very own. I want to take the viewer on a journey of the unexpected. Each piece could be it's own cover of the story waiting to be revealed within." Like a rolling stone, Michelle gathers no moss. She sometimes talks like a pirate, and knows how to stand on her head.
