Michelle Kleyr

Photographer, illustrator & video artist

born 1990 & currently living in Luxembourg and Saarbrücken

Engaging in different creative mediums and exploring new innovative combinations of those, 
I embrace an experimental process to create artworks that make use of a delicate but playful visual language.
