Sometimes the world around you just kinda stops for a while and all that there’s left is that moment. It can be a butterfly landing on your coat, a baby’s first laugh or the sudden reminder of a long lost friend. I can get mesmerized by those moments, they inspire me in my work.

My name is Machteld and I’m the artist behind the scenes of Studio Mach.
Quirky, dark, cheerful, dreamy and compassionate are some of the words that describe me. I’m never all of those things at the same time and sometimes I can be the opposite of those things.

At Studio Mach you’ll find unique and enchanting illustrations that
will make you want to just sit and dream away.
