Michele Humes self-portrait
 

Hi, I'm Michele Humes.

I'm a writer and visual artist in New York City. My subject matter is food. 

I studied cooking at the French Culinary Institute and earned an MA in Food Studies at NYU, where I wrote my thesis on the peculiar history of the children's menu.

Recently, I wrote and illustrated Noodler, a noodle soup inspiration tool for your smartphone. Princeton Architectural Press turned some of my digital paintings for the app into postcards; check them out here.
