My name is Maja Johansson and I live outside of Umeå, Sweden, with my husband Tobias and our son Mattis. I'm a graduated props maker, from Nordiska Scenografiskolan.

I have always loved creating things with my hands, whether it has been with paint, clay or fabric. Mediaeval and modern clothing-history is of great interest to me, so when it comes to sewing, I especially focus on recreating historical clothing. Photography is a constantly growing hobby as well, both in and out of the studio. I've written and illustrated a few children's books, a few articles, a collection poems as well as comic books. I suppose I enjoy almost anything where I get to use my hands and mind, basicly. ;)

Cats, and particularly Bengal cats are a big part of my life, which is reflected both in my photography and art. I've been a breeder with the registered prefix of Skogsleopardens for a few years.
