Knolly Nibbles was born from the heart of her creator and founder, Michele Goren. Out of pure love and empathy, Michele sought out a way to create a very special character for children in 2008. She wanted every child, the young and young at heart to know; no matter who they are, where they come from, what they look like or what they’ve been through, they are Special just the way they are. All of the quotes and stories Michele created had the universal message that All Life Is Important. This very message is what made TEAM KNOLLY come together, comprised of toy designers, artists, composers, voice-over artists, Disney, Pixar, and DreamWorks Animators, a savvy law team, All Very Brilliant and Talented!
Michele's passions and hobbies are anything that takes her imagination and turns them into creativity whether that is painting, drawing, sculpting, writing, illustrating, baking, cooking, photographing and the list goes on. Some of her past accomplishments include art for Paul McCartney through United Nations, Steven Spielberg, President GW Bush, Barnes and Noble, United Nations, Jack Nicklaus, The Coen Brothers Film Producers, etc. She loves the ocean and salt air.
Her son and daughter, 8 grand children, great grand child, family, friends, Knolly Nibbles and Knolly Nibbles partners are the greatest loves in her life.
What makes Michele special is that she Never Ever Gives Up. She is passionate about children being happy and safe, knowing they have a special purpose on this earth, everyone does. She strives to get the global message for people to be kind to one another and to pursue Peace, Compassion and Empathy toward and for each other. She is driven by those passions in everything she does.
“If I was living for no other reason but to help children and the child within every adult smile, feel joy, and feel loved, that would be enough for me.”
