Michele Dupras' Profile

About

Hello, I'm Michele... a designer, mother, and business owner. I have been making things for as long as I can remember. After graduating from Northern Michigan University with a degree in Art and Design, I knew I was going to have to get "creative" with my career to stay in the place I love, the remote Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

I worked as a kitchen and bath designer for a while but I really missed the act of physically creating things with my own two hands. Late nights would be spent after work in the basement "studio" of my apartment crafting jewelry and small ceramic items to sell in my Etsy shop. In the spring of 2009 I received my big break, a personal invitation to the ICFF in New York to exhibit my designs! The response I received was overwhelmingly positive. After returning from the show, I took a huge leap of faith and quit my day job to become a full time designer/maker…

Hello, I'm Michele... a designer, mother, and business owner. I have been making things for as long as I can remember.

I worked as a kitchen and bath designer for a while but I really missed the act of physically creating things with my own two hands. Late nights would be spent after work in the basement "studio" of my apartment crafting jewelry and small ceramic items to sell in my Etsy shop. In the spring of 2009 I received my big break, a personal invitation to the ICFF in New York to exhibit my designs! The response I received was overwhelmingly positive. After returning from the show, I took a huge leap of faith and quit my day job to become a full time designer/maker. Revisions Design Studio was born and I've never looked back. (read more here: http://www.etsy.com/blog/en/2011/quit-your-day-job-revisions/ )

I now operate Revisions out of a 1,200 sq ft. commercial studio space just outside of Marquette. My main line of ceramic goods ( www.etsy.com/shop/revisionsdesign ) are sold all over the world and can be found in stores such as Urban Outfitters. Just as when I began, everything is still handmade by me! In March of 2015 Revisions opened its flagship store.. an actual brick and mortar in downtown Marquette!

When I'm not at work I am busy being a mother to a beautiful daughter, Alexandra. I also love tinkering around on house projects in our big old Victorian home that houses my family of 7... me, Alex, my husband Torrey, 3 cats, Simon, Roo, Hobbes and a dog, Cache. It's one big hairy house full of love.
