Moira Zahra



Freelance Illustrator / graphic designer with a background in Creative Higher Education. 

Hello and thanks for stopping by! I'm an Edinburgh-based freelance Illustrator, and I also work remotely as a graphic designer.

My illustrations are influenced mainly by people, place and culture. My visual style is quite versatile, ranging from playful compositions of patterns and people, to more expressive and textural artworks with elements of visual storytelling.

My work can be found in magazines, journals, websites and applications, advertising, animations, products and award-winning children’s books. In 2017 I co-authored my first children's book which has been awarded Best Original Work (Ages 0 - 7) and Best Production at the Malta National Book Prize 2018. I am presently working on my second children’s picture-book. Click here to view the full list of my published works and recognition
