Daniella Perera is the illustrator behind Moody Seagull, and is based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She is of mixed heritage and draws on her experience from living in Hong Kong and London. Daniella mainly works in watercolour and linoleum for relief printing.
Inspired by the tropical beauty of Malaysia, Daniella’s illustrations are often of fruit, nature and animals. Daniella likes blurring the lines between fact and fiction in her art to create playful and quirky pieces that make people smile.
As Moody Seagull grows Daniella wants to keep on creating art that delights her audience, as well as supporting the social causes she cares about. You’ll find Daniella out and about in Kuala Lumpur photographing leaves, hunting for the best mangos and devouring durian at every opportunity!
