Michael was recruited by Hallmark straight from Utah State University where he received a Master of Fine Arts Degree. During his college years he took many courses in technical drafting learning much about line drawings, shading, and three-dimensional renderings. This training has had a major effect on the way Michael paints. It has trained him to see detail and strive for accuracy.

Michael was raised in Bountiful, Utah where he explored the rural landscape with his friends and family. He was encouraged by both his Mother and Grandmother to work with his art rather than follow the family occupation of mechanical engineering. Michael’s dream was sports but for some reason he always carried a camera with him.

While participating as a Mormon missionary in Thailand he carried a sketch pad with him and he became more and more interested in pursuing a career in art. Michael, still not sure of his career desires discussed his love of the arts with his wife, Lynda, who encouraged him to pursue his interest. Michael transferred to the Utah State University at Logan to delve into his interest in the fine arts.

This immersion in painting was a huge boost in his abilities and desire to paint.

After graduation, Michael was offered a position with Hallmark and was moved to Kansas City. During his employment with Hallmark he was in a unique position where he was allowed to use his experience as a landscape and figure painter to do specialty cards for the masculine line of cards.

Michael mixes what he sees and what he wants to see in developing his paintings. He may add a stream, a mountain, or waterfall to achieve the feeling he wants for his painting. Sometimes he will work some low mountains into the background just to give something for the colors to contrast against.

Michael is fascinated by landscapes but also loves painting figures. Especially when those figures are of his family and loved ones. While in school Michael did a lot of figure work with models but now tries to paint figures at least once a week, mostly his children. When doing figures he only paints those he loves. Michael is very close to his family. While doing a workshop in Texas, at night he would practice a magic trick just to be able to show it to his children when he returned. When he has to be away to paint or teach his family is always on his mind.

Meeting with others who are interested in art gives Michael a lift. Whether it is an art buyer, an art dealer, or an art student he enjoys sharing the creation of a painting or just discussing the process. Michael is thankful for a wonderful family and those that buy his paintings.

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.
