Maja Lindberg's reflection of The Reader

On April 16, 2014

Maja Lindberg, started her career as a ceramic artist and became an illustrator after a quick stopover in web design. Her interest in illustration deepened during a three-year relocation in China together with her family. Shortly after her return to Sweden, in 2008, Maja created a blog where she started to publish an image per day. A year later she opened her own shop, Majalin, at Etsy and has today become a well-known artist through Etsy as well as other craft sites and applications. She lives and works in Lomma, a small seaside town in the south of Sweden, where she runs her own company, Majali Design & Illustration, specializing in fine art prints.

Maja's illustrations are mostly inspired by fairy tales, dreams and childhood memories and often hold some mystery. Her goal is to create beautiful and visually engaging illustrations that encourage creativity, curiosity and fantasy.
