After many years working as a journalist and graphic designer, both in corporate design for print and web development, I am pursuing a new endeavor as a fine artist with a focus on photography and painting.
Often my inspiration comes from photographing the beautiful architecture found in the City of St. Louis or simply from ornamentals growing in my garden adjoining our historic storefront studio on South Broadway.
I am also exploring the art of photography by shooting ornamentals found at CityGarden in downtown St. Louis, Tower Grove Park and the Missouri Botanical Garden.
The site features a selection of images capturing the incredible beauty of The Ruins in Tower Grove Park and
the Great Forest Park Balloon Race in Forest Park.
A selection of artwork spans nearly twenty years, from pen and ink to watercolor, acrylic and oil paintings.
Using water soluable oil paints, I enjoy working on canvas to portray a moment in time where light, color and texture create a new vision. Energetic strokes and bright jewel colors can be seen in paintings featuring The Ruins at Tower Grove Park, Saint Louis Union Station, Pagoda at The Muny, the
St. Louis Skyline, Irises and Mums.
Currently, I'm working on a series of paintings inspired by my wonderful family for an upcoming reunion auction.
Images are available matted and framed for enhancing home offices, restaurants, hospitals, financial institutions and corporate offices. See 'Prices' for more information.
Samples of corporate collateral work can be seen on the web site for the Moore Design Group.

MOVE! The Exhibit at St. Louis Artists' Guild
I was so honored to be part of 'MOVE! The Exhibit', the first exhibit at the new home of the St. Louis Artists' Guild, at 12 North Jackson Avenue and Forsyth, in Clayton, MO. My oil painting, 'Sunset on Lake Sherwood,' and photography of 'Winter Grass' and the 'Blue Walla Walla,' can seen on the left wall in the photo above.
