Michelle C. Moode is a mixed media artist currently living in Iowa City, Iowa. A recipient of an Iowa Arts Fellowship, she is currently pursuing a Master of Fine Arts at the University of Iowa's Center for the Book.

She makes books, bookish objects, complicated installations, and draws lots of pictures. She has exhibited nationally, and has taught a variety of Printmaking, Drawing, and Bookbinding classes, both in university and workshop settings.

Michelle grew up in Southern California, and spent her high school and college years in Murray, Kentucky. She received her BFA from Murray State University in 2003, and an MFA in Printmaking from West Virginia University in 2007. ("Two MFAs?! Sure!") Through the years she has also learned things at the Penland School of Crafts, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and Frogmans Print and Paper Workshops.

She has been an artist in residence at the Jentel Foundation for the Arts and the Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts, both in winter, both in Wyoming. 

She looks slowly and breathes deeply in libraries, antique stores, and natural history museums. She's good at finding shed antlers. Other favorites include tea, time travel, field guides, and making lists.
