She gathers much of her inspiration from old Scandinavian fairytales and beliefs. In 2013 she started to combine the traditional graal-technique with 3D design. Many of her graal works are surrealistic stories captured inside blown glass. Majuri’s works can be seen as both fairytales and cartoons.

She lives and works in Helsinki.
