My Story

I have always loved creating things. It just fills me up. I don't have any super deep explanation for why I love art other than "I just love it and always have."

I had an Etsy shop several years ago and sold art in a gallery, but my husband lost his job, I had to close my shop, and life got crazy for a while.

But things are looking up! I am back at it and hope to fill my shop with lots of art and illustrations, and eventually, I would like to license it.

I am a graphic designer and illustrator who has been freelancing on and off for years and you can find me at, or on Facebook and Instagram - @maidacreative.

My name, Maida, is pronounced May-duh. Lots of people ask that question so I figured I would just explain it up front.

I hope to see you again soon!
