Michelle Lee Provencal is a graduate of Pratt Institute with a degree in Industrial Design. For over 20 years, she has worked as a product designer for well-known brands including Anthropologie, Pottery Barn, and Coach. In 2017, she launched Thirdlee & Co. as a home for her own newly developed needle-felted designs. Her original designs are directly inspired by a deep connection to the tidal landscapes and coastal waterways of Southern Maine’s Biddeford Pool and Saco Bay where her family has made memories for generations. Thirdlee & Co. continues to grow and now encompasses a range of original handcrafted designs as well as a curated vintage & found décor collection. Michelle divides her time between Southern and Mid-Coast Maine and continues to provide freelance design services from her home studio.
