Hello! I'm Michelle, a freelance illustrator and artist from Cyprus.

A few years ago I moved back to my little island after more than a decade away and settled into a small home studio with a growing number of animals. 

I specialise in hand painted illustrations and sometimes use digital colour backgrounds in my work. 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!

In 2019 I opened a brick and mortar shop in the capital called #shopatnumber4 with two other creatives where we make and sell our artwork. If you're on the island look us up at Perikleous 4, 1010 in Nicosia.

To keep up to date with my work follow me on Instagram or visit my Etsy shop for some of my products.
