Originally from Vancouver, MICHELE QUAN moved to New York in 1984 to study graphic design and photography at Parsons School of Design. She worked in metal for twelve years and co-founded the New York jewelry company Me&Ro before embarking on her current medium of clay. She recently launched her solo jewelry line, which features rich metals and diamonds in striking, minimal forms. Her mixed media and ceramic work continues an ongoing pursuit to bring visual form to our internal landscape and locate the thread that connects us with the experience of the world in which we live. Michele works out of her studio in Brooklyn and lives in New York with her husband, daughter and dog.
