Maria is a Norwegian illustrator living and working in London. She uses charcoal and cut-out painted pieces of paper to create simple and lo-fi drawings and collages. The use of textures and strong patterns is a recurrent theme of hers, alongside a range of characters often realised in charcoal, giving her work a sketchy and spontaneous quality. Her work is often based around personal projects and interests, taking the form of self published zines, artist books and prints. She has also created work for a range of independent clients and brands making illustrations used for apparel, magazines and album artwork.
