Meet the Artist

Pen & Ink

Maya Gürtler, also known as Pen & Ink, has been part of the Illustrate collective since we opened the doors to our first shop in our hometown of Bristol. Maya is a tattoo artist and illustrator based out of Copenhagen, although she started out in digital media, she has always been drawn to, in her own words, “creating things with my own two hands.” 

Maya loves to play with light and shadow in her work using triangulation to give her work a real sense of depth.

In their own words...
