I am a Colorado artist enthralled by the natural world! In a world where photographic images are so universal, I believe that an artist’s rendition sends a message to the viewer that the subject deserves a closer look and greater attention than a “snapshot.” To that end, my work is realistic and representational but often includes abstract or philosophical components. I enjoy the challenge of thinking backwards when planning a reduction print, the bold, graphic quality of block printing, and the ever-present element of surprise when the final product emerges from the press. Watercolor, however, is my favorite medium for working in the field because of its spontaneity and portability.

I grew up drawing and painting and pursued a variety of media throughout college and graduate schools (with tandem degrees in biology and art) but took up block-printing over ten years ago and am a largely self-taught printer. While I sometimes use my own photographs as references, I much prefer to work from life and most of my work is completed outdoors through patient hours of watching. One of the most important tools in my artistic repertoire is a pair of binoculars!

I do freelance illustration work and created a wordless children’s book entitled Raven and the Red Ball, published by Pomegranate Press. As a teacher, I work with everyone from elementary school students to college attendees on nature journaling, watercolor, and printmaking. Some recent exhibitions in which I’ve had the honor of participating include Birds in Art 2021, 2022, and 2023 at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Museum, Wausau WI; the David Shepherd Wildlife Artist of the Year Exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London UK from 2010 through 2023; and The Contemporary Print at PrintAustin, 2022.

Although I grew up in the Pikes Peak region on Colorado’s Front Range, my great-grandparents homesteaded in the Four Corners area and founded the town of Lewis. I moved back to Cortez two years ago and feel creatively rejuvenated by these surroundings and their history. I’m also inspired by my summer job in the lush fjords of southeastern Alaska, working as a naturalist and guide on a small charter boat. During the rest of the year, my husband and I live, work, and create in southwest Colorado.

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.
