About

Michelle McCoy is a Chicago-based visual artist whose chosen mediums are predominately printmaking and drawing. By day she works with rare books and archives and has recently become very influenced by historic book illustration and the book as a physical artifact. While the themes of her work varies, all attempt to examine a whimsical view of culture.
