Hey there! My name is Michele, and I'm the human behind Drew + Jule. I named Drew + Jule in honor of my loves, my husband and my daughter, borrowing their middle names.

I have been drawing my entire life, but as my photography career took off, I made less and less time for my other artistic passions. When the pandemic hit in 2020, I was very pregnant, very stressed, and very much in need of a distraction. I decided to channel some of that restlessness into digital illustration, and it quickly relit a creative spark that I had been missing for a long time.

Drawing has become my meditation after long days of chasing a very sassy (and unreasonably adorable) toddler around. I've loved having the opportunity to create freely without pressure, and just draw whatever I'm in the mood to draw!

Thanks so much for checking out my work – I'm looking forward to continuing to create and share my art :)
