Moore, a native Texan, completed her MFA at Otis College of Art & Design in Los Angeles in 2016. Recently named one of Saatchi Art’s 20 Artists To Watch in 2020, her work has been exhibited at The Other Art Fair in Dallas. Moore has exhibited in group exhibitions with Jonathan Ferrara Gallery in New Orleans, the Bolsky Gallery in Los Angeles, and the Vignette Art Fair in Dallas, among others. She has had solo exhibitions in Los Angeles & Austin, with an upcoming solo show in Lockhart at Commerce Gallery. Moore currently lives and works in Dallas, TX.

Statement
Moore’s Texas roots and California influence have culminated into her current body of work. Often inspired by Ed Ruscha’s work Every Building on the Sunset Strip and A Few Palm Trees, Moore sources the images that influence her paintings from many car rides, walks, and hikes up to overlooks. She explores terrain & architectural characteristics to illuminate the underlying nostalgia and aura of a location. Marfa, TX, a favorite pit stop during the long road trips back and forth from Texas to California, also holds space as a source of continued inspiration for Moore. As a homage to Hollywood, Moore also finds visual influence for her work in the world of film; particularly from visionaries such as Stanley Kubrick, Ridley Scott, and Alfred Hitchcock.
