Michelle Caplan Research & Design Services

After obtaining her BFA in Graphic Design at the School of Visual Arts, Michelle worked in the Art Department at several of the top publishing houses in New York City designing a vast and varied number of book covers.  Having always had a love for Art, she developed a passion for collage portraiture. Her portraits are an amalgam of her love of books, vintage papers and materials, learning peoples stories, and seeing the results of mixing medias that is always unexpected and thrilling. Her commissions have captured the life and memories of people, places, and things close to the heart.  In 2008 her artwork caught the attention of Eric Kent winery for whom she created the label for the Dry Stack Vineyard Syrah.  At Locus Wine Consulting she brings her artful eye and facility with design tools to bear on sales & marketing tools and collateral.  Her ability to corral and marshall a wide array of details has been honed by her two young daughters.  That ability also serves Locus Wine Consulting's trade research, market surveys, and communications.
