Hi! My name is Michelle Pentoney, owner of Trashed.  I am truly thankful for the amazing opportunity Jessica Garmon, founder,  has given me--to take Trashed Studio to the next level. With a background in Design & Arts Education, I am excited to continue showcasing local talented craftspeople & offer an array of Arts Education workshops & classes to all ages!

I moved to Concord, NC from Buffalo, NY in 2011. I have a Masters Degree in Art Education and taught for 7 years in the public school system. Art has always been a passion of mine. I love art teaching, not only because it gives me sense of accomplishment, but also because it provides me with the opportunity to interact with people of all ages, listen to them, and to watch them learn. My husband Chad is also an artist. He has a Bachelors Degree in Ceramic Design. We live to Downtown Concord with our two doggies & kitty.
