Michelle Greco both lives and teaches in New Jersey. While writing is her primary medium, she also works with other media, including photography, pastels, acrylic paint, and micron pens.
In both her writing and hands-on work, she experiments with textures of tone. Conflict is forever present in her work. Tension, whether internal, relational, or spiritual, is vital since it is prime fuel for change. These different conflicts, as told through her poems, have appeared in Painted Bride Quarterly, The Stillwater Review, Edison Literary Review, and the anthology Dear Sister, among others.
Michelle pries her way through difficulty to release her tangled thoughts, striving to grasp some clarity. Through sharing her work, she hopes that readers will find scraps of themselves that they can piece together in a mosaic of their own.
Music is a huge part of Michelle’s process. Everything from screaming vocals, club beats, and acoustic arrangements inspire her. These melodic poles help her depict the intricacies contained in the human experience, though admittedly, there is much of this startling life she has yet to discover. With pen and brush in hand, she finds art in the smallest of moments.
