Born in Nashville, TN, former Baltimore and New York City resident Michelle Hagewood is now based in Seattle, WA.  She is an artist, educator, and museum professional.  Her studio practice is largely driven by investigations of potential landscapes and architecture using mediums that intersect with ink and drawing.

Michelle completed her BFA at Maryland Institute College of Art and MFA at Vermont College of Fine Arts. A former artist-in-residence at the Creative Alliance, Michelle has participated in a number of artist-run collectives such as Current Space and EyeSplice, and has nationally exhibited and published her paintings, drawings, and installations. Simultaneously, she has maintained a career in designing museum programs that facilitate artistic engagement with all ages, and she's held positions at the Walters Art Museum, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Henry Art Gallery.
