ABOUT MICHELLE

A friend once dubbed me “an arts enabler”—a term that beautifully expresses my passion for helping creative individuals and businesses communicate their vision, as well as connecting artists with diverse audiences. Whether you need to refine your artist statement or bio, update your website, have a studio crit, write compelling website copy, need a speaker for an event, or want help grappling with a knotty psychological issue, my team and I can help. I have 25 years of experience in the arts and with non-profits, including 13 years at The MacDowell Colony, the nation’s oldest artist retreat. If you’re interested in working together, send me an email. You can see my full CV here and read more on the About page of my website.

“As a musical artist in the music industry for over 35 years, I have had the great blessing to work with many art organizations world wide…. My experience working with Michelle at The MacDowell Colony was exceptional. She is an extremely intuitive and an organized art advocate. Her expertise in and knowledge of the art world along with her enthusiastic and nurturing spirit make her an excellent mentor to the art community.”

“I know Michelle Aldredge as a friend. Our conversations grew from shared time at an artist’s residency. She is a person of genuine grace. She knows how to listen. She is caring in her speech. She is self-possessed. These are rare qualities.”
Kelly Coveny
Kelly CovenyChief Creative Officer at milk*
“Michelle has a uniquely positive, multi-contextual approach to the arts…. Her positive approach is most definitely a breath of fresh air given the crowded and challenging climate she works within. Her first talk at milk* explored using situational limitations to actually spark and enhance creativity. She tackles the genius of what is right in front of her and builds on it. Such a transformative approach!”
