About the Artist
Moore is an oil painter. She was born in Canada and grew up in Maine. Her family lived in Aroostook County, then moved to Cumberland. She attended Waynflete School and Sarah Lawrence College, where she focused on painting and photography. She studied in France at the Cleveland Institute of Art in Lacoste (now SCAD Lacoste) and Paris. She lived and worked in Manhattan for 12 years, then returned to Maine, where she works from her studio in Freeport.
Moore has engaged in an ongoing exploration of Maine's industrial landscapes and what she describes as “the architecture of usefulness.” Moore believes that, in Maine landscapes, “we often reference an idealized, natural state of forests, mountains, and coastline, but there is another equally beautiful landscape that tells an important truth about our culture and our history.”
