Maja Lindberg lives and works in Lomma, a small seaside town in the south of Sweden, where she runs her own company, Majali Design & Illustration.
She started her career as a ceramic artist and became an illustrator in 2010 after a quick stopover in web design. Through the years, Maja has developed her own style that is quite distinct and recognisable.
Since 2020 she has worked closely with an esteemed art agent, who has facilitated exciting opportunities for her to showcase her art in various forms and mediums. This partnership has allowed Maja to take on diverse projects that challenge and inspire her, while ensuring that her unique style and vision remains.
In addition to her store and commissioned works, Maja has also made her mark in the literary world. She has illustrated and co-authored several books, bringing her illustrations to the pages of stories that captivate readers of all ages.
As an illustrator, I work primarily in the program Procreate on my Ipad. My creative process begins by immersing myself in the narratives that inspire me. Whether it’s working on commissioned projects from my agent, Jehane, or creating prints, I approach each piece with a dedication to capturing the essence of the story.
The versatility of digital illustration allows me to blend different styles, from whimsical and playful to sophisticated and elegant, adapting to the unique requirements of each project. With an arsenal of digital tools at my disposal, I can manipulate color, texture, and composition to create a visual language that engages and communicates effectively.
In my illustrations, I weave together elements of fantasy and reality. I find inspiration from the mysteries that surround us and the depths of human emotions, the duality of light and shadow, joy and sorrow, hope and despair.
My goal as a digital illustrator is to captivate, inspire, and transport viewers to a world of imagination. I want to create an emotional connection between the viewer and the artwork and through my illustrations, I aspire to evoke curiosity, laughter, wonder, and a sense of familiarity.
