Before we get into who I am, I think it’s important to get one thing straight: I love to draw. I’ve always loved to draw. I also love dogs, Nintendo, Star Trek and Canada. And oh, yeah, I’m super cool.
My name is Michelle Ouellette and I grew up in Southwestern Ontario, graduated from Toronto’s Sheridan College in 2006 and have since relocated to Detroit, Mi. I’ve previously worked for several advertising agencies as a graphic designer, illustrator and compositor. In 2011 I struck it out on my own freelancing in the animation industry as an illustrator and storyboard artist. In 2013 my husband and I opened Yeah Haus, a small but hearty animation studio in Detroit that focuses on making beautiful videos for some of the best people in the known universe… and I’ve watched enough sci-fi to know.
Most of my days are spent drawing, hanging with the family, toddler + dogs watching cartoons and searching for the perfect flavour of ice cream.
