I pursued animation and illustration to help me explore new narratives and open up all the stories I have bursting out of my head. As a child I was always told ‘you’re away with the fairies’ so I suppose I gradually started to follow them and I got carried away. I’ve never stopped daydreaming.

I’ve been drawing seriously since I was a baba and animating since I was 19ish. What keeps me going is the satisfaction of seeing an animation/illustration complete. All the hard work, problem solving and long hours is worthwhile to see people smile or even better, laugh! 

I live to tell stories like the ones that inspire me. I’m inspired by the tiniest things, banal ordinary activities and tasks spark a story to be discovered. All perspectives and ideas are welcome. Right now I’m a full time freelancer, available for any request! I’m forever curious and I’m happiest when I’m creating. If you’re interested in my journey then check out my instagram @merloose.
