Michelle Darwin

Web Design + Development

For nearly a decade, I crafted websites – for an award-winning magazine publishing company, for a design agency, and then independently working directly with clients. During my time as a freelance web specialist, I focussed on building custom websites for small businesses looking to take their business to new heights, some of which are showcased below.

Please note that I am no longer accepting new web projects in order to focus on making Painted Stories truly amazing.


I am pleased to have worked with many wonderful clients, including:
