Kind words from Ann Maloney

Features Editor, New York Times Media Group

“Michelle Shapiro has that perfect blend of artistic flair and organizational skills. Her keen perceptions allow her to grasp a concept and express it through illustrations that tell a story in an unusual and creative way — with just the right tone and style. Her highly developed artistic sense is revealed in the images she chooses as well as the colors and movement in her work. The art she creates could stand alone as fine expressions of ideas.”
