Born in 1977 to a poet and an artist, Maya grew up in a distinctly creative atmosphere; she was also influenced early on by her jeweller grandmother. In 1997, Maya attended Camberwell College of Art where she gained a BA in Silversmithing and Metalwork. Following this, she worked as a freelance prop maker with the Royal Opera House and the National Theatre.

In 2004, she attended Bishopsland and completed a year’s silversmithing and jewellery residency before spending two further years in Sheffield at the Yorkshire Art Space. In 2008 she set up her first workshop at Cockpit Arts in London. This year Maya also undertook a series of masterclasses in Italy with jewellery guru Giovanni Corvaja.
