Moriah Costa

Moriah is an American transplant living in Madrid, Spain. Her favourite part of art journaling is being able to experiment with different techniques and styles and not having to care about making mistakes or if it doesn’t look good. The worst part of art journaling for her is having a great idea when she’s at work and having to wait until she gets home to start creating. Her favorite dinosaur is the Argentinosaurus.
