Artist | Professional | Digital Art
Hello, good people of planet Earth and beyond, and welcome to my deviantART gallery.

My name is Michelle, and I'm a Norwegian artist who works hard on improving my skills. I have been studying Computer Graphic Art at the Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark for 3 years, and it was an absolutey amazing place to be. I am currently working as a concept artist for advertisement at a big VFX studio in London called MPC, and it's great.

I have a passion for fantasy art, though I like to explore as many different subjects as possible. If I'm not drawing or working, I can usually be found running around in the mountains with my dog, enjoying a good fantasy book, spending time with my wonderful friends, reading scientific articles, gaming all night, or drinking tea. I love tea. As in being perfectly capable of consuming 3 liters of it in a day, should I feel like it.

I really want to improve as much as possible, so if you have any critical criticism regarding my work, please don't hesitate telling me - I'm generally a nice and calm person to be around, so it is very unlikely that I will turn into a monstrous being and bite you.

Regarding commissions: Feel free to contact me if you're interested in commissioning me. You can either send me a note here on dA, or send me an email at Be aware that I do not work for free, and this also includes "possible profit if a project succeeds".

That being said, I hope you will enjoy my work. Thank you for visiting :)

Where to find me around the web:
Now that my time at the Animation Workshop is almost over, I thought it would be nice to give a little update on where I'm heading afterwards. I've been spending my third and final year of the education together with my team, working on a 2D animated short film called Grandma's Hero. You can check our production blog here if you want to see some little snippets from it! It's less than 2 weeks until the film will be done (which means that it's crunch time now!), although it will not be released online until January/February next year. I've had a lot of fun during the project, although it has been a bit stressful at times with many different tasks. I will definitely miss my time at TAW, it's been some of the best years of my life :)

But the future is bright as well! In July I will move to London together with my boyfriend, and we have both gotten internships at MPC! He's going to the film department as an animator, and I'm going to the advertisement department as a concept artist. I'm very excited about my new job, and I think I will learn a lot and have a great time. I hope to stay in London for several years, working as a concept artist and illustrator :)

I hope I will find time to do more personal work as well in the times ahead, although I'll be very busy for a few weeks at least. In any case, life is pretty exciting the moment :lol:
