Today, and having realized herself in the field of psychology, Maja is deeply involved in her artistic endeavor, aptly titled “Magic Place”.

This turn and development in Maja’s career initiated from her inclination towards interior design, in her own work space. Interested in developing unique solutions for wall decorations, Maja filled her premises with her own, new art. People she worked and interacted with were impressed with the atmosphere of positivity, energy and beauty her art brought to the space. Their comments and commendations nudged Maja into developing solutions for other establishments, both small and luxury, high class establishments. This, in turn, led to huge interest and to this date Maja has sold over 40 paintings just this year. She has published a catalogue with the first series of paintings, with new art to be introduced shortly.

The reaction of critics and the public has been impressive, and although a newcomer on the art scene the expectancy is that Maja has great potential that will expand and be realized in the next decade.

Maja’s paintings are inspired by the ever changing world we live in and in creating her artwork she combines both of her passions – art and psychology. Her experience in human psychology and perception of the world and behavior patterns, bring a unique vision and expression to her paintings.
