Hello there!

I am Nina, the artist behind Pattes de Mouche. I hail from Switzerland, and have settled in the warmth of Brooklyn, NY. I am a freelance illustrator and designer with a Bachelor in Visual Arts and a Masters in Media Arts.

Some of my recent work include my first illustration book, the 24H Book, a tree guard design installed in Brooklyn, original illustrations for the Headstrong Nation Organization  Pivot book and logos for super nice people like Yoga for the Resistance

 When I am not drawing some googly-eyed little dudette, I knit hats . I also swing dance and love pro-wrestling. I do not have a favorite color (errr, maybe a soft yellow...) 

I am available for commissions and collaborations. Get in touch! 

                         Email - Instagram - Twitter - Facebook



My designs and illustrations are available for purchase on products such as tote bags and iPhone cases in my Society6 shop.

Limited edition of handmade illustrated goods are available  in my shop right here

Drop me a line at nina@pattesdemouche.com for any questions, requests or comments. 

Petites Pattes


Pattes de Mouche [pat də muʃis a french expression akin to "chicken scratch". It's a humorous idiom that directly translates to "fly's legs", referencing the wiggly hair on the bug's legs looking like a squiggle! It's always made me chuckle, and it seemed fitting for my doodles, so voilà!
