melissa and her horses

Hi, my name is Myska!

I am a freelance illustrator and designer, currently living alongside the Scottish coastline with my husband and chihuahua - Narnia.

Originally from South Africa, I am on a creative mission to travel the world with my dog and husband, pencil and art brush at the ready!

I mainly focus on children's book illustrations, coloring book therapies, and watercolor paintings. But I love to venture into new territory - like oil painting, beadwork, or cosplaying designs (like the armor my horses and I are wearing in the photo). Eventually I'd like to expand my creative products to more than just books - but that is a long-term goal.

Our Mascot - Narnia!

This is my little chihuahua - Narnia.

She is a well-travelled Chihuahua, originating from South Africa and travelling across Europe with my husband and me. So far, she has seen 6 out of the 9 provinces in South Africa, Amsterdam in Netherlands, different parts of Southern Wales, joined us on various expeditions across England and Scotland - that makes 5 countries so far!

She often puts up with cosplaying and photography, just to keep me happy. Here, she is wearing her armor I created for her out of a yoga mat, Velcro straps and fabrics. My sewing skills are basic, but hopefully one day I can make her boutique outfits to match that dazzling personality of hers!
