Hi everyone! I’m Michelle, previously the artist/designer of Silvine Designs, a fine art photography and handcrafted jewelry business. I graduated from the University of Michigan in 2009 with a B.A. in Linguistics, Spanish, Arabic Studies, and Japanese Studies and worked as a photographer/designer for a few years before finding my current job. I love to learn new languages hence my studying abroad in Egypt, Spain and Japan and excessive traveling.
Many of my photographs are taken during my travels through Europe, Asia and Africa. I’m continually seeking inspiration in the architecture I see, the local customs I engage in and the vibrant lifestyles of the people I meet. I see each photograph as a candid shot of someone’s life in another country. Through my photography I want to erase borders that may exist because of distance, language or misunderstanding.
This is my blog about myself, my photography, my poetry, my jewelry, my travels, and my random musings. If you have any questions, please post them and I will do my best to provide answers. So feel free to look around the blog and I hope you enjoy it.
