Biography

Hello! My name is Brianna Moore, and I create characters, illustrations, and digital images using Photoshop and Illustrator. I also enjoy working with traditional pen, ink, and watercolor. Born and raised in Northwest Ohio, I graduated from Bowling Green State University with a B.F.A. in Digital Arts and a Studies in Natural History minor. I am excited about careers involving character design, illustration, and visual storytelling. I also offer freelance services to create illustrations and graphics that help people communicate their ideas, connect with others, and tell their unique stories.

Currently I am developing my original characters and their stories. I am also continuing to practice my digital and traditional artmaking through workshops, books, and online tutorials. I plan to continue learning and growing as a professional artist, and I hope to explore more of the world’s natural wonders as I pursue my career!
