I’m Marija, an ecologist and illustrator.

My aim is to create a nature diary with playful and colourful illustrations of flora and fauna, as well as of landscapes. I create both digital and traditional illustrations (mainly watercolours and gouache).

I am inspired by the great outdoors, the colours and shapes of nature, and my artwork reflects both my formal education in ecology and my curious, childlike spirit. With my illustrations I want to cultivate appreciation for nature and the companions we share the Earth with.
