Michele Corriel lives and works in Montana's scenic Gallatin Valley, surrounded by seven mountain ranges. 


Her work is as varied as the life she's led, from the rock/art venues of New York City to the rural back roads of the Rockies. Her research on Montana's artistic history led her to earn a Doctorate in American Art and a Master's Degree in Art History. Author of four books, she's also a prolific freelance magazine writer with articles published regionally, nationally and internationally. Michele has received a number of awards for her non-fiction as well as her poetry. She also teaches critical thinking at Montana State University, presents writing workshops, and speaks on panels across the country.

As an art consultant, she works with artists on a personal level, helping viewers and collectors to understand their current body of work.
