My name is Maja and Pink Pumpkin Studio is my creative space. My work is often inspired by nature spirits, beings, creatures, and elements. The ones we see, and the ones we dream.
I grew up in Poland, and as a child, I spend a lot of time drawing, painting, sewing toys, sculpting, writing short stories and observing nature.
After moving to Ireland, I completed a Master's Certificate Program in Web Design and was working as a web designer for about seven years. However, after a few years, I started to feel that this is not what I want to do for the rest of my life. So, I quit web design and decided to listen to my heart, and create art using fibers, textiles, and natural elements/materials.
With the great help of my very supportive husband Maciej, without who I could not do what I do, I began a new chapter in my life. First I learned how to knit and crochet. Then I learned embroidery and needle felting, I also improved my hand sewing & stitching. I am still learning new techniques and discovering new materials. I don't think learning ever stops!
My passions for colors, art, and nature finally came together, and here I am. For the first time in my life doing what I truly love!
I live in a beautiful Ireland with Maciej and our 6 crazy cats.
Thank you for visiting my shop and my website!
