  1. Absolutely amazing work! She is the best Artist I know when it comes to bringing book characters to life!

  2. I absolutely loved the fanart I purchased and will definitely buy more! There’s just something about this artist’s style that speaks to me. Highly recommend!

  3. Micheline has an almost magical ability to step inside my head and portray characters exactly as I imagined. She is excellent at communicating with regards to her work and happy to change anything, although she gets it so perfectly I can’t imagine that happens much! An absolutely beautiful artist and one I hope to work with much more x

  4. I absolutely loved working with Micheline! She was so imaginative, personable, efficient, great with communication, and flexible with changes. The finished art really captured my characters! I was already an admirer of her work and knew she would do an excellent job but the results floored me. Having my characters brought to life is a magic in itself, a true gift that I will cherish, and Micheline did so with spectacular artistic aplomb. I hope to be able to work with her again soon!

  5. Micheline is an AMAZING artist and I was absolutely honored to have a piece created by her of my original character from my book. I have admired her artwork for so long and was squealing with joy at the way she brought my character, Evelien to life. I’ve showed literally everyone I know the commission she made for me and I have it set up beside my computer when I work. She truly captured the fierceness, vulnerability and empathy of Evelien while making her look powerful and badass!

    She’s a pleasure to work with and I can’t wait to get another commission from her soon!

  6. Hi Micheline,

    We saw that most of your commissions are listed as out of stock, so we just thought we would reach out because we absolutely adore your work, especially the way you excel at capturing such diverse characters so well. We would love to book you for your next availability 💙

    Thank you,
