Michelle Cuevas

Born in Silver City, New Mexico and raised in Texas, my goal was to become a successful portrait artist, but working for Roger Allen for over a decade where I had the opportunity to learn from him everything from craftsmanship to technique to continuing his legacy of sharing the art spirit, took me on a different adventure. My work is hand built functional ware with designs inspired by me and my husbands Mexican roots and culture. My work reflects the bold and bright colors of traditional talavera pottery but with my own twist and flare.
