Seren Moran was born in 1989 in Berkeley, California. In 2011, Seren graduated from San Diego State University's Fine Arts Program, with an emphasis in painting. She graduated with honors, was initiated into Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society, and was the only undergraduate to receive the annual Art Council Scholarship that year. During her junior year of college, Seren studied abroad in the highly competitive art program at the original Leonardo da Vinci School of Art, L'Accademia di Bella Arte, in Florence Italy, where all classes were taught in Italian. Seren's time in Italy was spent focused on nude portraiture in both painting and printmaking.

In 2012, Seren moved to Indaiatuba, Brazil, where she spent 10 months teaching English, learning Portuguese, and painting. There, she painted her Brasil Series which resulted in two exhibitions at a gallery and museum in the State of Sao Paulo.

Seren's current work explores the transition of her returning to the Bay Area. The subjects of her abstracted images in this series, are the homes of her childhood friends.
