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 illustrative work is influenced mainly by people and culture. My visual style is quite versatile, it is partly inspired by classic fashion illustration but with a more playful, witty and contemporary approach. So far I have created illustrations for magazines, journals, websites and applications, advertising, animations, products and 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.
