In the Spring and Summer of 2009 I had the amazing opportunity to work with the staff of the Henry Carter Hull Library in Clinton, Connecticut to produce a mural for their Children's Room. Lynn Hidek, Barb Loescher, and I brainstormed about ideas to generate a Fairy Tale illustration. I don't know how many Fairy Tale books I checked out over this period of time, but looking at the work of very talented children's book illustrators helped get the creative juices flowing. My daughters also had the opportunity to have special time with Mommy and read many of these great tales. The mural needed to be bright and cheery, to capture your attention, and I wanted it to coordinate with the future color scheme of the children's room. The end result can be seen in this page and on the wall of The Henry Carter Hall Library. I want to thank Lynn and Barb for their patience and for letting me be a part of something so special.

"Not only does Michelle exemplify the kind of person who makes a group of people a true community, but as an individual she manages to meet the needs of her young family, her own graphic design business and various volunteer efforts in Clinton with energy and enthusiasm. Michelle has consistently contributed her time and talents to support, publicize and provide design for several events of the Clinton Action Committee including Our Town One Read and Red Hand Day."
