Hi I’m Michelle, a Dutch freelance illustrator!

I create joyful illustrations about the sad and fun side of life.


In a picture perfect world, I feel the need to be honest about both sides of life through my illustration work. By doing this in a playful way, I want to give people the opportunity to nuance their feelings, talk about it and perhaps have a laugh about it.


I believe it’s important to acknowledge your feelings, but even more to do something about it instead of dwelling on it!


let's chat!
