Michele Tecco is an American multimedia artist and art educator working with photography, sculpture, video and installation to create process-based, meditative images and objects concerned with the movement of time, death and decay, the element of chance, and how the body relates to these. Photography is central to her work, with a large format 8x10 view camera as her foundation. She holds a BFA in Photography from Maryland Institute College of Art, and an MFA in Photography from Temple University. She has exhibited nationally and internationally in solo and group exhibitions, and has taught adjunct at Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia Intermont College, and Tyler School of Art.
