METTE ENGELL is an illustrator represented by the Bright Agency

She grew up watching Jacques Cousteau and David Attenborough with her parents, and from a very early age she knew she wanted to become a marine biologist.

However not long after getting her masters in Biology, she picked up a copy of “On my island” by Marie-Louise Gay, and fell in love with picture books.

She has illustrated several books and magazines for publishers in the US, the UK, and other European countries – and she hopes that one day, she can add author to her portfolio.

Mette lives in a small town by the ocean in the north east part of Denmark, where she enjoys life with her husband, 3 kids, and their 2 cats
