Maya Shapiro

Maya Shapiro biography

Maya Shapiro is an illustrator and writer, currently studying at New York University. As an artist, Maya enjoys working primarily with watercolors and fine liner ink pens, as the juxtaposition of textures create blurred and rich backgrounds, and give her pieces an aura of fantasy and whimsy.


She fell in love with Eva’s Memory Garden because of the strength, determination, and maturity Eva exhibits as a young girl and throughout the story. In her free time, Maya uses her creativity in multiple alternative mediums, including graphic design, and utilizing soft and hard graphite pencils, acrylic paint on canvas, and water-based-pens for illustrations.
