Groups and Organization We have worked with in the past:
Mahieu Studios holds a large umbrella. We can handle a large range of projects thanks to our creative team. We combine our skills to create quality in animation, ebooks, and illustration. We also consider ourselves to be entrepreneurs in our interests because we believe in creating opportunities and values in our communities. An artist or author should never have to starve visually or literally in any world!
