Michelle Brener is the founder of Ciaboga Studio.

She grew up swimming in the oceans of Venezuela. Her parents encouraged her to expand the imagination far from television and closer to the water.  Ocean life has inspired her work - always giving her illustrations a fantastical twist. Brener graduated from the University of Miami with a Bachelor of Science in Communication. She continued her education abroad, studying serigraphy in Florence, Italy, Oil Painting in Aix-en-Provence, France and Watercolor in Paros Island, Greece and Ireland. 

Brener’s work has been showcased in The Lowe Museum of Art & South Miami Art Walk. John Frieda, Miami City Ballet, Mercedes-Benz Corporate Run, Given London, CR-eate Studio & Airbnb are few of the companies she has had the pleasure to design for.
