Hi, my name is Maisie and welcome to my website. I am a freelance surface pattern designer and illustrator, otherwise known as Ma‘at Silk. Currently based in Southern Spain, I gather most of my inspiration from the beautiful natural setting around me, ancient art, modern design and popular culture.


I work in a variety of different artistic mediums including alcohol markers, watercolours, inks and digital programs, such as Illustrator and Photoshop. I also hand paint my designs onto silk and ceramics. I like to alternate my supplies and experiment with creating different textures and colouring effects as it gives all my projects a unique feel, plus the trial and error approach is lots of fun for me.

Commissioned work is a large part of what I do. I enjoy working with customers, creating a piece of art work that suits their tastes, needs and budget. My designs can be transferred to a wide variety of products, everything from greeting cards to shower curtains. Finding new products and ways to use my patterns is always a thrill. Please contact me for more information and rates. Meanwhile here are some of the places my designs have ended up in the past.

Behind the Scenes

I work on and create all the finished designs in my studio, however I never leave the house without a notebook so it's normal to find me sketching in odd places.
