On a cold wintery Christmas morning Michelle opened up her Crayola Carousel and from that moment on, there was no surface safe from her creativity...
but it wasn't really until after her schooling and moving out among the tall trees of the West Coast of Canada that her creativity really took off professionally. Working mainly in Marketing and Publication design spent the last 20 or so years developing her talents for clean and inspiring designs and illustrations. Then one day when the publishing industry started to tank, so she decided it was time to strike out on her own. And start her own stationary company. So she did just that in creating thunderpeep - a playful stationery company which has grown into a thriving online shop with stockists throughout North America.

Some Bits&Bops about Michelle
Loves the outdoors. Hugs trees, gets dirty and is usually lost in her adventures. But that’s where the best stories come from!
Has read the Grimm’s complete works as well as the collections of Asbjornsen and Moe a lot of times. The darker and stranger the fairy tale, the more interesting it is. Anything with Trolls and talking foxes are her favourites (and yes she’s Canadian so there are extra u’s throughout her work)
She recently wrote and published her own fairy tale. About the bestest of friends who set out on a forest adventure only to discover the value of friendship and the magic of the forest!
Grew up just outside of Toronto but quickly jumped ship for the mountainous regions of BC as soon as her schooling was done. She now currently resides on Vancouver Island.
Dream trip: Norway / Iceland / Finland / Estonia / Lithuania all together in one epic trip. (although she's already travelled to Finland and Estonia she loved them so much she wants to go back again and again)
Is a Yin Yogi
Her side project - The Nemophilist Journals - is a storytelling adventure that helps to promote a return to our wild and free roots of running barefoot in nature
Is currently binging the Lillyhammer on Netflix! Again.
