Born in Hong Kong, Maxim started her career in the 1970’s as a professional designer in graphic and stage productions. In the past decade, Maxim turned to work in illustration. As a professional illustrator sought after by both private corporations and public institutions, Maxim is known for her keen observation and the resulting unique and detail expression of her subject matter; she is particularly admired in her work of the nature, in the rendition of flowers and insects and her ability to capture that childlike moments in her works targeted for the children market.

In recent years, Maxim adds to her perse repertoire fine art paintings, mostly surreal or abstract works in acrylic on canvas. In her latest series she is exploring the relationship of self with the perceived world and seeks to express those inner feelings with gutsy sensory motifs and bold eloquent colors.
