Michelle Ouellette

Yay, nice to meet you!

I am a partner in the award winning animation studio Yeah Haus, who’s work in commercial animation is sought out by clients like Google, Fiat and multiple ad agencies. Our animated and live action short films have been screened worldwide, most recently at Cannes film festival (#Last Selfie, 2019).

Personally, I’m a sought after art director and illustrator in both the animation and advertising industries. I’ve traveled far and wide taking part in, as well as occasionally speaking at conferences and events. Hailing originally from Windsor Ontario, I’ve relocated to the Detroit area, where I share my studio and life with husband + director extraordinaire Chad Thompson. When not working, Chad + I are spending time with our giant dog and two kids.. usually eating endless bowls of noodles or playing some Zelda.
