Designer, colour + typography lover and mama of two, Michelle is fuelled by coffee and blessed to live on the West Coast of Canada. Raised on Vancouver Island, it is easy to be inspired by the beauty of the ocean and forest that surround her. With almost 20 years of design experience, she keeps her artwork fresh … simple, clean and beautiful. She prides herself on being easy to work with, and for her clients to enjoy the process! She has designed over 200+ book covers, but feels most connected to women authors sharing their stories both fiction + non-fiction.
