Read Maxine's story in her own words, below.
I knew it was not the most profitable of career choices. So I put my dream on the back burner for many years so I could afford to travel overseas and buy a house.
After losing my friends I felt like life was too short to not do what I love so I went about making my children's book illustrating dreams a reality.
I am painting up the final illustrations for a book.
When illustrating children’s books I mainly use watercolor, colored pencil, and aquarelle crayons. For my print design work, I use watercolor, pen and ink, graphite pencil, and also digital media.
After walking my giant puppy my days start by checking emails and socials, then I usually work on roughs for a book and liaise with my editors via meetings and emails.
Don’t worry about what other people are doing or what they think of your work - just do what YOU love and the results will show.
