Hello, I’m Maayan.

I am an illustrator, designer and fine artist. Most of my subjects come from the world of nature, natural history or scientific concepts. But I also love creating more fantastic pieces and concept design as well! I came into this odd career by way of a lifelong love of art, and a solid education in science, which I am still pursuing.

I am available for freelance work and based in Pasadena, California. For inquiries about prints, commissions, or upcoming projects, please get in touch!
