Maria is a Norwegian artist and designer who now lives and works in London. She launched her own line of soft furnishings and prints in 2011, following several years working for Orla Kiely. This collection has been stocked by Heal’s and Liberty.
Maria’s style is bold, graphic, and often playful, and is influenced by her childhood in Norway, as well as her own personal experiences, with the titles and subject matter of her prints often referring to her own creative journey.
Most of her prints start life as hand-drawn sketches and doodles, which gives them a great energy and softens the bold colours and shapes. The fabric for her cushions and lampshades is all made in the UK.
