Mette Engell is an illustrator born and raised on Zealand, the largest island in Denmark, and the 96th largest island in the world.
She grew up in a small town north of Copenhagen, and later moved to an even smaller town by the ocean – where she enjoys life with her husband, 3 kids, and their 3 cats.
She studied marine biology at the University of Copenhagen, and after getting her Masters, she started working as a freelance webdesigner at night, while designing LANs and WANs for a major ISP in Denmark during the day.
After her first child was born, she went back to the art world, and if she is not drawing, she is either running by the ocean, cooking or playing with her kids – very often at the beach.
