Hello! I'm Michelle, a freelance illustrator and artist from Cyprus.
Why the name "paintbrushinmytea"? Well why not. Also I do this a lot. Also my sister came up with the name because I do this a lot.
Born in London, raised in Cyprus and higher educationed (making up words) back in the UK I moved back to my little island a few years ago and settled into a small home studio with a growing number of animals.
I specialise in hand drawn / hand painted illustrations and more recently I have been getting the hang of digital illustrations! Colour is a major factor in my art and my life (and my hair ...for a few years anyway, until my curls sadly couldn't handle the bleach any more). In my spare time I enjoy dancing - sometimes I even have dance sessions with my dog so I created the hashtag #dancewithyourpetsaturday on Instagram. Do join in and tag me!
Art has always been and will always be my therapy, and through my work I hope to bring some of that joy to others with funnies, happies and lots of colours.
