About Me

What’s your story?

Some people like to collect postcards or watches, shot glasses or antique clocks. We all have a thing that fascinates us, and for me that thing is language. I am a collector of words and lover of stories, of the voices we don’t hear and the ideas we can’t yet fully understand.

For as long as I can remember, I have been obsessed with the smallest details of life. I find inspiration all around me every single day: in nature, in good conversation and the fascinating people I meet. I create art to heal, to remind people that they matter, and to remind us all that we’re not alone. I need this reminder from time to time, and I’m sure I am not the only one.

I am an artist first, medium second. I find the medium to suit the story I am trying to tell. This means I am a multi-hyphenate artist – dancer / acrobat / poet / writer / photographer in the making, and I am always looking to learn new things.

If my words resonate with you, let’s stay connected! Find me on Instagram @maia.thom and come say hi 🙂
