Overview

Reviews (4)
I have studied art, illustration and fashion design at The Royal Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design in Copenhagen, Denmark. For the past few years, my freelance assignments have been quite varied reaching across commercial and fashion illustration to wallpaper design, packaging and prints for textiles and clothes.

My work has been included in many compilations on illustration, and I have created quite a few editorials for various magazines like Marie Claire, cosmoGIRL!, Wall Street Journal and Mail and Globe Magazine. I have worked with publishers like Anova Books, Orion Books, BIS Publishers, Hearst, Egmont and Bonniers.

I am used to working with agencies and clients world-wide and have been doing so for years. I sell and exhibit originals and prints to private collectors and have exhibited my work internationally.

With all those fancy words said; no job is too small (or too big - ha!), so do not hesitate to contact me for a quote!

Mia was excellent to work with, highly professional and produced a stunning book cover that was just what I was looking for (but didn't know it until she came up with the idea!). She communicated with me regularly throughout the process and it was a pleasure working with her. I would definitely recommend her to other authors.
