Maria Maaneskiold

Maria Maaneskiold is a Norwegian illustrator and art director, born in Oslo. She experiments with complex feelings around self image, often with refrences to fairytale and Mythology.

Her use of selfportrait and symbolic characters alude to a certain experience of identity, sexuality and escapeism. Her work resembles that of dreams and create a visual universe of her own confused psyche.
