Feature Friday: Maja Lindberg Illustration

Where are you from and where do you practice your work?
I’m from the south of Sweden and I have my studio in the basement of our house.
Are you self taught or have you completed any training?
I went to an art school for three years and specialised in ceramics and pottery. After my education I worked as a ceramic artist for a couple of years. In 2009 I started to draw - in that field I’m self-taught.
How would you describe your artwork/process?
  I always start with paper and pen. When I'm finished with the image I scan it and continue to work with it in the computer where I set all the colours, background, shades and textures.
What is your biggest influence/inspiration?
A lot of my inspiration comes from fairytales, memories and movies. I also find a lot of inspiration at Pinterest, looking at photographs and other artists illustrations. Some of my favourite artists are Rebecca Dautremer, Nicoletta Ceccoli, Gabriel Pacheco and the director Tim Burton.
Where can people see more of your work?
