About Brianna C. Walsh
Welcome to my website filled with artwork of dragons, dinosaurs, birds, and more! I'm an illustrator and sculptor based in the Los Angeles, California area. I specialize in drawing creatures, and occasionally will have a focus on illustrating other animals from time to time.
For as long as I can remember, I've loved to draw. I have always found art fascinating and I love to build upon my ideas by exploring different designs. I learn a great deal from other artists, and I'm always striving to expand that creativity. Even from a young age, I've always felt like illustration was something I wanted to do and pursue. I dedicate a lot of motivation to my mom who is constantly supporting me. Other people along the way show inspiration, and I'm always learning from that ingenuity.
Art is a universal language, and people from all over the world are able to be brought together by a single conceptualized message. I constantly see new ideas I would have never thought of before.
I have continuously been inspired by animals I'd see from nature documentaries or wildlife parks, and began by illustrating the ones you'd still find around us today. That path eventually drew me to fictional creatures such as dragons. At the age of 18, I was enrolled in a semester class at Gnomon - School of Visual Effects, Games & Animation for environment design, which granted me the motivation to begin experimenting with my artwork. When I'm not illustrating, I'll be trying out different art forms such as sculpting, animating, and costume-making. In my free time, I love to hang out with family and friends, as well as my adorable bird, Aloe the Suncheek conure (who really does express his cuteness on a daily basis), as well as the newest member of my family, Jackie Sparrow the Illiger's macaw.
Up until recently, I discovered I had a new passion for a separate art form; sculpting. Most of my time is usually used sculpting/creating dinosaurs or other creatures. It's fun to try seemingly impossible things. The biggest project I've ever tackled was a life-sized 23 foot long indoraptor (Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom). I plan to have it finished in the summer of 2023.
