Mikaila Maidment is an artist and illustrator with a love for stories, especially stories that tell of the extraordinary moments captured in the everyday experience. From great novels like Jane Eyre and The Power of One, to deep conversations over coffee, stories guide her, allowing her creativity to flow with direction and purpose.

Mikaila graduated in 2005 with an MFA in painting, and then left for Ireland, where, she painted murals, nannied, and rode her bike through the countryside. She moved back to the US and, in 2008, began her illustration career. She has illustrated several children’s books, is a regular cartoonist for iPhoneLife Magazine, and continues creating her own art.
