Paper and Stitch: Mixed Media CreationsAt Lost Lake Studio, Michele Heather Pollock turns her love of paper and stitching into beautiful functional objects and fine art. Her work includes mixed media stitched paper work; mixed media paper sculptures; as well as hand bound books, bookmarks, greeting cards and more. Paper and stitching provide a consistent thread connecting all of her works.
Michele holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Purdue University, and spent a decade doing fundamental science research at 3M. As a visual artist, she was trained at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, attends workshops, and relies on many traditional techniques, such as sewing and quilting, in her work. She also holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Hamline University, and her original poetry is sometimes the inspiration for, or finds its way into, her visual artwork.
