Maike studied Illustration at the HAW Design in Hamburg after having decided to pursue her dream of an illustration career. In 2015 she moved back to a lovely neighborhood in her hometown Berlin, where she now lives and works with her partner and their dog. In her studio full of plants, Maike loves to do colorful illustrations for book covers, magazines and other exciting projects. She has also ventured into comic books together with author Flora Grimaldi, which were published in France and Germany. When she is not drawing, she loves sewing, riding her longboard in the sun and watching a movie on the couch with her significant other.
