About Moira Risen

Moira Risen I'm a Hungarian part-time digital artist and illustrator born and living in Budapest.
I've been drawing all my life. I started with pencils as a kid, then later I've tried everything from charcoal through ink to watercolor and finally I've discovered the opportunities of the digital world. As an adult I've been working in different design areas where visual presentation is very important but it's always about the plan and never about the image itself - it took me almost 20 years to start to create my own images, depicting my own imaginary reality.

Most of my pictures are inspired by the existing world, but with a touch of illusion - I like to play with unreal lighting and reflections creating compositions that feel 'almost' realistic. My images portray mostly imaginary scenes and worlds, seascapes, landscapes, skyscapes, trees and wildlife, nature's beautiful patterns; often inspired by tales, ancient legends, novels, movies. All my images are finished digitally but I use mixed methods to create them - from my manual drawings through manipulated photographs to digital painting.

As for the number 12 (all of my series contain 12 pictures that are somehow related)...Creating is a never-ending, chain-like process for me: when something captures my mind - a visual idea, texture, relation, topic, whatever - I keep on creating pictures around it. I had to set a limitation to myself that helps me to finish the pictures and move on to something else, and 12 seemed an appropriate number.

My wildlife conservation awareness poster series were made primarily with the intention to help to educate young generations about environmental issues and to help to bring some attention to what humankind has done and is doing to the amazing wildlife of this planet. My whole profit from any sales of these series goes to the Sea Shepherd to support their fight to save our oceans and marine wildlife. For now, you can purchase only wall prints and some products here on FAA/pixel, but I created several design variations more suitable for t-shirts etc. - they are available through my website: please visit 12images.net. You can find more details and information about the series and the featured species on my blog.

Restoring vintage botanical illustrations is a recent project I just started, but I plan to continue with new additions from time to time. My family has been running an antique book shop for decades so I've been fortunate to hold some really beautiful, rare old books in my hands over the years. Some of the antique botanical books have gorgeous illustrations with strikingly beautiful and delicate details - I find the process of digitally restoring them to how they could look like centuries ago when they were originally printed very satisfying.
