Her friend and mentor, artist Terrie Smith, introduced Michele to the furry fandom,[1] and Michele began drawing furry images in late 1992. She already had a large fan following[2] by 1994. Her artwork was published in The American Journal of Anthropomorphics issues 2 and 4, and is on both the front and back covers of the latter. She was involved with Katmandu issues 1, 2, 4, and 11.

There was a page for Michele Light (misprinted as "Michelle Light") in the Artists Passport which was available at Further Confusion 2002. She was a guest of honor at ConFurence 9 (1998), Rocky Mountain Fur Con 2007, and Furry Fiesta 2010.

Michele states that "My work has a definite Anime slant to it, with big eyes and wild hair. Most people would describe my art by saying "Oh, it's sooo CUTE!""[1] However, her art has been criticized for being too repetitious, with the faces of many characters being remarkably similar to one another.
