Maeve works as a freelance visual storyteller and illustrator. She combines photography, hand-made model making and digital techniques in all of her visual stories. She’s fascinated by narrative structures and how different kinds of characters are represented within them. This is all heavily informed by her time working as an actor.
A real lover of variety in life, her inspiration comes from a limitless number of different directions:
Nature, eccentric animals, David Bowie, Film Noir, Alexander McQueen, Stravinsky, Rembrandt, Picasso, super heroes, fairy tales, Dutch landscapes, junk shops, Patti Smith, George Orwell, Shakespeare, Titian, Funkadelic and Jennifer Lawrence among many others.
Apart from working on commissions and her range of limited edition Giclée prints, Maeve is currently working hard on her first children’s book.
