Maria Larsson is an illustrator and surface pattern designer from Stockholm, Sweden. Leaving school with a grant and honorable mention in art, she was admitted into a three year long program of art and ceramics and chose clay as her primary instrument of artistic expression. Always being a dedicated history nerd she later added a Master of Arts in archaeology and art history to her qualifications, a field she would work in for many upcoming years before returning to her creative calling.


DO illustration! Studio is where she is currently making illustrations for a variety of clients all over the world. To know more about her patterns please visit Dot Oddity Design Studio!
