MAYA LEMAITRE

Illustrations & Comics


Hello! My name is Maya LeMaitre. I was born in Montreal, Cananda in 1992 and grew up in Cape Town, South Africa, where I currently live. I make illustrations, comics, zines and prints.

I studied Fine Art at the Ruth Prowse School of Art in Cape Town and graduated in 2013. After this I completed a semester studying Fine Art at the University of Hertfordshire in England in 2014. When I returned to Cape Town I began focusing on illustration and comics.

I have been freelancing since 2015 and have worked with publishers such as Psychology Press, Juta & Co. Ltd., and Maskew Miller Longman.

I love working by hand, using pen, ink and watercolour to create my illustrations and comics. If you'd like to work with me, get in touch at mayalemaitre@hotmail.co.za
