I’m Manelle.

Whether it’s through telling stories for a middle-grade book cover, or creating a costume illustrations that brings out a character’s personality, I try to create illustrations that bring enchantment to life. I love drawing fantastic, and historical subjects, and work primarily using watercolors.

I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in illustration from Brigham Young University-Idaho. I have been working as a freelance Illustrator since 2005.

Now I live in Salt Lake City, Utah with my husband and two cats who we named after the weather. (Muggy and Drizzle) I enjoy being a member of SCBWI and volunteer with our illustrator coordinator to plan an annual conference for the illustrators in our area.
