Maja Modén is an illustrator born in the Swedish mountains in the north, but now located in Stockholm. She has worked as an illustrator for over 20 years after receiving a masters at the Konstfack University of Arts, Crafts and Design.

She takes her inspiration from 1960s posters, vintage cookbooks and hanging out in nature.
