My Bio

My name’s Maura, and I’m an artist with a love for nature, landscape, character, fantasy, and animal art and photography. I’ve been drawing since I was young, and have been making a living doing various graphic design and computer based artwork for different companies.

While I do love creating digital art and probably always will, lately I have been trying to focus more on traditional mediums: watercolors, oils, pen & ink, and a good ol’ trusty pencil and paper. It's good to get away from the screen sometimes! :)

Why the name Sylvan Mist? Well I’ve always had a love for fantasy artwork and themes and wanted to create a brand name that would go along with that. Sylvan fit the nature lover side of me quite well, and adding a touch of magical “mist” to the name sounded good.

You can check out my Sylvan Mist Art website here: which has all my animal artwork on it. I also sell all my "bird designs" on items on sites like Zazzle: and Redbubble: sylvanmist | Redbubble

I also have another brand, Camera & a Canvas, which is part travel blog, part art & photography blog, centered around landscape artwork: Camera and a Canvas, Exploring the world with art and photography!

Currently, I do illustrations for Gryphon Mount Games, a game design company that me and my husband created together focused on tabletop card & board games!

You can say I keep myself busy :D

I am available for commission projects however, feel free to message me!

Hi, I found your art through facebook and then instagram. (I was the one asking for an art trade on DA, and here you can see what I could make in return - if you are willing to do it). So nice to see that I can watch your work on here as well! :D

Hi, oh're drawings are really nice!! Sure I'll do an art trade :) What would you like me to draw/paint of yours? I have a cat if you'd like to try drawing her

This art is stunning! Thank you for blessing my eyes! Also thank you for commenting on my Goldfinch piece!
