Maja Celija was born in Slovenia in 1977. She attended primary school during Tito's Yugoslavia, and secondary school during Tudman's Croatia. She graduated from the European Institute of Design in Milan, and since then her illustrations have travelled all over the world. She now lives in Pesaro, but the forest is her second home: Maja adores the animals and the mushrooms.
