Sofia Moore’s Painted Illustrations Appear to Her Like Ghosts


Nature illustrations by Sofia Moore

Cit­ing “worn out brush­es” as one of her favorite tools, Sofia Moore paints scenes that fuse abstract­ed land­scapes with ele­gant fig­ures and ani­mals. The imag­i­nary places burst with col­or, tex­ture, and gor­geous shape design that builds rich, dense illus­tra­tions.

In a detailed blog post, Sofia offers a poet­ic descrip­tion of her cre­ative process. Parts of her com­po­si­tions, it seems, are like appari­tions. “They are parts of some sto­ry that I don’t real­ly have con­trol over,” she writes, “the images just vis­it me when I am ready to place them on pre­pared back­grounds and they tell me how they want to be shown.”

Sofia sells her work through Etsy. Fol­low along with her work in progress on Insta­gram!
