My name is Mia Maria and I work as an illustrator since 2006. I live with my family in Stockholm, Sweden.

In parallel with other work, I make children’s books. I illustrate, design and have also written one of them. I do the whole process from sketch to print and love working with books because they have so many dimensions. Children’s books are valuable for so many reasons.

I also do other illustration work and workshops. I like the process of cooperation, discussion and feedback!

See list of clients & publishers I am and have been working for.
Welcome to contact me for new assignments by e-mail or by phone!

I am represented by Koja agency.
