In 2005, Michelle Jones- Allgaier,a full time mom chose the challenging road of a single mother with three kids, one with special needs. ‘Chell’ needed to create a new job with a flexible work schedule and the ability to support her children. Drawing on her skill and passion for art, design, and nature, Art by Chell, a custom art business was developed. As her repertoire of services grew, the business evolved into Chell Design Studio, encompassing fine art, decorative art, commercial art and workshops. Her work can found in many residential, commercial and public spaces in Eastern Washington – see a full list of her finished projects here.

Her natural abilities in design bring an artful touch to residential interiors and commercial projects through a large selection of custom finishes and paint techniques. She enjoys experimenting with products and art techniques, spurring her upcoming online videos to share her knowledge and excitement for creativity.
Chell resides in Kennewick, Washington. She lives in a lively mid-century home with her loves; Greg, Raven, Nathan and Jewel, her 4 cats; Athena, Miss Kitty, Maisy and Edie, and, her two dogs; Ninja and Petey.
