In this series I spotlight some of my favorite artists, many of who inspire me and my designs in some way. I hope you find a new favorite to love!
Artist + Business Name:
What I love about her style:
First off, y'all know I am a huge fan of nature and that wanders in the woods are my jam so of course I adore the subject matter of her art! She is also a Michigan native so we have similar experiences with plant life.
Second, there is something very visually pleasing to me about the way she illustrates flora with a fine black outline. Maia manages to capture fine details in a clean and simple style. I am not usually a huge watercolor fan but the way she uses it in her work is perfectly lovely. Her colors are rich and vibrant and true to life.
What I love about her:
I have had the pleasure of chatting with Maia twice in real life and a few different times on Instagram (she is so knowledgeable about plants!) and in all cases she has been a wonderful human. She's friendly and encouraging and willing to share what she's learned on her small business journey. As a female artist entrepreneur myself, I always have my eyes open for those I can learn from and Maia is one such person for me!
