New call for testimonies!

My artist booklet on Dreams & Nightmares is now available in my shop in a limited and signed edition of 50!

Here are a few pages from the booklet, only in French for now:


 Rêves et Cauchemars, ©️ Maite Leon


We all dream at night, even if we don’t remember doing so. I am a big dreamer too. These nocturnal images, often fleeting, are forgotten when we jump out of bed, but some of you may have a precise recollection of them, or have taken care to write them down. Visions, scenes or stories, often incoherent, sometimes absurd or surreal, which are full of emotions reflecting our inner world: with this editorial project, I am proposing a visual translation of your dream imagery according to my sensibility.

I have been an artist for twenty years. I create vibrant and colourful illustrations inspired by art, stories, movies and myths. I explore Nature and human nature to underline the marvelous and mysterious dimension of the world around us. This collection of dreams allowed me to explore the universality of this nocturnal imagery and to highlight the collective aspects of our unconscious.

I am now starting a NEW collection of dreams and/or nightmares, for a larger editorial project, so all your contributions are very welcome.

If interested, you just have to pitch me one of your dreams, in a paragraph of 10 lines minimum. You can send me up to three dreams by email contact@maiteleon.com or via the form below.

Your stories, if selected, will be listed in the larger edition with your name or can remain anonymous if you wish. More updates to come on this new project!

I look forward to reading you and illustrating your dreams!

And feel free to pass on this message to the dreamers around you who might be interested.
