Maria Kristjansdottir recently graduated with an MA in Children’s Book Illustration from the Cambridge School of Art. Growing up in Iceland, she enjoyed being active, spending summers running wild, and making up stories at her grandparent’s house in the countryside on the west coast of Iceland. She also used every opportunity to doodle and draw on anything she could find. Illustrating and making children’s books is a terrific way of combining her need to draw and her love of making stories.
