Hi there! I'm Mikaila Maidment--artist, illustrator, and muralist. I love to paint stories--whether it's my own little world or the epic sweep of the latest adventure novel I'm reading, I'm all about illustrating the story of life. I completed my MFA in 2004 and since then I've painted murals in Ireland, taught art at Maharishi University of Management, and illustrated children's books. I currently live in Fairfield, Iowa, a unique town of meditators, environmentalists, artists, and inspiring people.
