Michelle gets inspired by everything around her. Sometimes the ideas just land in her head out of the blue and other times a scroll through the world wide web gets her ideas flowing. Michelle’s illustrative universe is quite simple and naïve and you can recognize her illustrations by her soft pastel color palette. And the eyes of her characters are almost always closed - a signature that really began because Michelle found it hard to draw just the right kind of eyes! Another significant thing for Michelle is not to be too pretentious in her work – one human quality she really treasures in other people is self-irony and she likes to have a twist of that in her work too.
