Nelson is not a novice to the world of art, even though his young age would tell a different story.
You might say he was born into an art studio. Both Nelson’s father and mother are professional
artists. Having a natural talent for drawing, since day one, he was attracted to learning more. In
middle school he started gaining attention for his three dimensional work and won awards from
the local school district’s art competition. In high school Nelson’s acrylic painting won first prize
for 11th grade category and The Best of Show in 2012. Nelson also submitted and was accepted
into the National Scholastics Art and Writing Competition, 2013. From these judged pieces, the
curators from the Denver Art Museum chose a few select pieces to display in an exclusive show
in the Denver Art Museum where Nelson’s pen and ink, “Colorado River Toad” was prominently
displayed as the first piece of artwork as you entered the gallery. His original artwork was a bit
unusual because it took up the entire wall. After high school he attended Columbus College of
Art and Design for two years, studying illustration. Nelson attended the 2017 Illustration
Academy, in Kansas City, MO. A five week intensive hands-on course taught by many of the
countries premier illustrators. Here Nelson tackled projects and techniques that expanded his
skills and approach to creating art. He was challenged and ended the course with renewed
enthusiasm for refining and expanding his own techniques.

Currently Nelson is continuing to learn while producing beautiful original works of art. He is
studying under the world renowned artist, Thomas Blackshear. Nelson is learning painting
techniques by observing and trying his own hand in creating portfolio and fine art pieces.

techniques. These include pen and ink, scratchboard, and pencil on paper. He also has a
fascination for painting with acrylics, oils and digital arts. Nelson has a lot of experience with
Illustrator, Photoshop and Indesign. Nelson says, “I prefer traditional mediums but I also enjoy
digital art. I don’t like to limit myself to one medium because I like to experiment. Creating is, by
definition, learning through experimentation”

Broadmoor Galleries in Colorado Springs is proud to present “Moore Art: A Family Affair,” an exhibition that showcases the unique artistic styles of American impressionist artist Robert Moore, and his two children, Anna, and Robbie Moore. Robert, who is colorblind and paints with both hands simultaneously, has established himself as a prominent figure in the art world, and his children have followed in his footsteps.

Robert Moore, a celebrated American painter who is colorblind and paints with both hands simultaneously, is known for his signature landscapes, cityscapes, and portraits. The exhibition will showcase a range of Moore’s works alongside those of his talented children.

“Moore Art: A Family Affair” is a unique opportunity to experience the work of three incredibly talented artists from the same family,” said Broadmoor Galleries director, Jamie Oberloh. “Robert Moore’s impressionistic style is a true representation of the beauty and diversity of America, and his children Anna and Robbie are following in his footsteps with their own unique styles and techniques.”

Robert Moore’s artistic achievements are all the more remarkable given that he is colorblind. Despite this, he has become known for his ability to create vivid and striking color palettes in his paintings. He has also developed a unique technique of painting with both hands simultaneously, which allows him to create intricate details and textures in his works.

Moore’s use of both hands to paint has been compared to the way a pianist uses both hands to play a complex piece of music. This technique requires a great deal of focus and coordination, and it has become one of Moore’s signature methods.

Moore’s colorblindness has also influenced his work in other ways. He has said that he is drawn to painting landscapes because he is able to see the world in shades of green, which he can differentiate more easily than other colors. This has led him to develop a deep appreciation for the beauty of nature and the environment.

Despite his colorblindness and unique painting technique, Robert Moore has become one of America’s most beloved impressionist painters. His works continue to inspire and captivate viewers, and his contributions to American art are truly remarkable.

Anna Moore, a professional artist in her own right, draws inspiration from her father’s work and her surroundings, using her skillful brushstrokes to capture the essence of nature in her landscapes. She works in a variety of media, including oil painting, watercolor, and printmaking. Her work is inspired by the natural beauty of the American West and the people and places that inhabit it.  

Robbie Moore, who recently graduated with a Finance degree from the University of Arkansas, has always had a passion for art and the natural world. He has developed his skills in drawing, gouache, watercolor, and oil painting, and his work has been featured in a company calendar commissioned by his employer. With his father’s legacy of developing artists and a lineage of artists in his family, Robbie’s future aspiration is to make the most out of his upbringing and create a name for himself in the art world.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the work of three incredibly talented artists,” said Broadmoor Galleries’ director, Jamie Oberloh. “The combination of Robert’s impressionistic paintings with Anna and Robbie’s unique styles and mediums creates a truly exceptional exhibition that will delight and inspire our visitors. Their paintings are a true representation of the beauty and diversity of America, and we are honored to share the work with our community.”

The exhibition will be open to the public from May 18th, 2023, through June 8th, 2023, and will feature a special reception on May 18th, 2023, from 4-8 pm, where visitors can meet the artists and enjoy light refreshments. All works in the exhibition will be available for sale.
