Michelle Czajkowski is the creator of Ava's Demon, and since the successful funding of the Kickstarter for Ava's Demon: Book One on June 29, 2013, it has become her full-time job. She started creating Ava's Demon when she was the age of 13 and suffering from depression in order "to escape life."  It took her about 8 years to finish, and she is now undergoing the task of converting it into webcomic format.
Michelle Czajkowski attended the School of Visual Arts in New York City, where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Computer Art and Animation in 2011. During this time, from June to October 2009, she worked briefly as a concept artist for the animation studio Nathan Love . Czajkowski was then briefly an intern at the major animation studio Pixar from June to August 2010. She then worked as a Character Technical Director at another major animation studio, Dreamworks, from July 2011 to June 2013, putting work into the major film Me and My Shadow and the major film Home, formerly known as The True Meaning of Smekday or Happy Smekday! From May 2012 to present, Czajkowski has taken on the arduous task of converting her original comic Ava's Demon into a webcomic format. In March 2017, it was announced that Czajkowski would be contributing several pieces of artwork to the card-based role-playing game Firelight, alongside continuing work on Ava's Demon. She joins other artists such as Loika and Vicki Tsai on the project.
Despite her former close correspondence with fans and the growing popularity of Ava's Demon, Czajkowski manages to keep her personal life neatly under wraps. She resides in New York, USA. Czajkowski is known for taking frequent brief breaks for personal reasons, including the health of her niece or her presence at a convention .
She appears to be a fan of several different media, as portrayed by the fan art displayed on her DeviantArt account. This account includes fan art of several things, including Bee and Puppycat, Sailor Moon, and the video game Off.
Occasionally, Czajkowski will make an appearance at a comic or anime convention. In the year of 2015, she attended Otakon, Anime STL, and Katsucon, as stated in the News Feed on the Ava's Demon website home.
Czajkowski used to frequently respond to fans on websites such as Formspring and Tumblr. However, due to frequent harassment, her internet activity became primarily confined to Twitter, announced on February 1, 2015 . The moderation of the official Ava's Demon Tumblr blog was transferred to another, anonymous person.
