I love to sketch and paint, plain and simple! In second grade, I was Artist of the Year after making a puppy out of fabric. I moved on through the grades and caught the bug again in eighth grade. I was drawing a motorcycle and getting to the details of the spokes and such. To my surprise, teachers and students came to look and actually admired my work!
Life went on - marriage and college. I took a detour and majored in something other than Art for, you know --practical reasons. From time to time, I dabbled in pencil sketching; sketching pets for relatives; painting a bit, but never forgetting my dream.
Since I turned a young 50 (the new 30), I decided I had waited long enough to live my passion. Now, in between work and children, I devote my time to sketching and painting - anything and everything - from floors to walls to canvas.
I enjoy painting in acrylics... a wonderfully creative medium. You can add water for opacity and use thick bodied paints to create texture. I still love sketching and tend to mix the two together. I also paint in watercolor and oil. I paint on canvas, walls, concrete, vinyl, wood, clay, brick, metal, and pumpkins!
I have painted many commissioned pieces - princesses, action figure characters, sports, murals, portraits, and more. I have also painted for gifts and for inspiration. I LOVE it...can't wait to do the next 'piece'...my passion comes from my dad, Ralph Moore, who was a wonderful and talented furniture craftsman. He also taught his techniques and was amazing at it. I hope he gets to see my work from heaven! He's probably up there fixing the big table on which everyone gets to eat together.
