About & Contact

Hi! my name is Maite and I am illustrator and graphic artist originally from Donostia (Spain) and based in Bilbao(Spain). I have also lived in many different places, Barcelona, Madrid, Covilha (Portugal) & London.

When I was 3 years old I decided I wanted to be an artist, them I change my mind about 1000 times but I came back to the idea of being an artist with 17.

I have been working for advertising and graphic design for 5 years but my professional objective is to work entirely as illustrator.

I like the black humor, strange films and the ironic people. I like working about the funny and stupid world, and I make adult illustration, from fiction to non-fiction world.

If you want to collaborate, offer me a commission or just say “Hi” write me to: hello@maitediez.com
