Steven Clement was born in 1950 in Flint, Michigan. From 1981 to 1985, he was Assistant Professor at the United States Air Force Academy and from 1988-89, developed creativity workshops for home-schooling parents, private schools, and the U.S. Air Force.


I have loved to draw and paint since I was a young child, and the awesome wonder of God’s creation has inspired me for as long as I can remember. All I ever wanted to be was an artist, but I worked in many fields before finally reaching that goal in 1985. I had come to Colorado five years earlier to teach at the United States Air Force Academy, and I immediately knew the West was where I belonged. The vastness of the skies and their giant cloud formations, the ever-changing appearance of the mountains, and the mystery of the semiarid landscape awakened something deep within me. After hardly painting at all for many years, I started in earnest to capture on canvas the glories of my new home. In 1983, my first group show persuaded me I might actually make a living in art as all my paintings sold. I left the Air Force in 1985 and have never looked back. Since that time, I have found even more things that excite and inspire me to paint. Landscapes still comprise the majority of my work, and I continue to explore the West, seeking new vistas for my art. On several recent trips back East, I have also rediscovered the more intimate beauty that inspired the earliest American landscape painters. In the last decade, I have done many figurative pieces as well. I find nothing more arresting than a well-painted figure. What does the future hold? More landscapes, more figures, and perhaps new subjects I have not yet considered: whatever in my Father’s world stirs my artistic soul.


I paint primarily because it brings me joy. I paint to glorify my God who made all of my subject matter. But I also paint to communicate to you, the person who loves art. As an artist, perhaps I see the world a little differently. If you will, it is my task to seek and paint some of the treasures in our world you might otherwise never see, e.g., by hiking for hours by flashlight to see the sunrise in a remote location. It is also my task to notice wondrous things you might overlook in the hectic pace of modern life. These things often arrest my gaze and compel me to do something about them. If I later paint them, be they ephemeral clouds or graceful trees or fascinating people, then you may, when you see them in my paintings, contemplate these things more than if you simply brushed past them in the real world. You may thus begin to behold our marvelous universe with a greater sense of awe and wonder. If you do, you will live with more passion and perhaps even more compassion. You will see things and people in a new and richer way, for you will be more alive to your world. This is one of my greatest possible services to you as an artist. As is apparent from my work, I am not trying to create something shocking or novel or to start a new art movement. I am not a visionary or a prophet attempting to show you the future. Rather, I am an artist, and I hope to use my artistic vision to expand your vision and enrich your life. And if that happens often enough, it may indeed change the world.


With some reluctance, I have included a listing of prominent corporate and institutional collectors of my art. (Not included are the dozens of leaders of these organizations who have my paintings in their personal collections.) Such information may assist you if you are just beginning your collection or if you are considering the work of an unfamiliar artist. You can also obtain invaluable information from art books, knowledgeable gallery owners, art museum staff, and artists themselves, not to mention from studying lots of fine paintings. Ultimately, however, you should trust your own judgment and buy what you love. Your tastes may change over time, but if you collect what moves you, you will not go far afield. With these thoughts in mind, it is usually best not to think of your art acquisitions as serious investment vehicles unless you are that rare person with a thorough knowledge of the art market and pockets deep enough to afford the works of established masters. Instead of looking for the best investment, buy what you love. If the market agrees with you, fine. If not, you still have what you love. Also, collecting art should be fun; it should bring you joy. If you feel stress, something is wrong. The only time you should feel stress in the art world is when you are walking away from a work you really want or paying for a work you really do not want. Studiously avoid both. Finally, whether you collect many art works or only look at them in museums and galleries, my wish for you is that you will become richer in heart and soul.

Soli Deo Gloria!

"Moore Art: A Family Affair"

Exhibition, Reception, and Sale

Colorado Springs, CO – Broadmoor Galleries is excited to announce ” Moore Art: A Family Affair,” a special exhibition featuring the works of American impressionist painter Robert Moore and his two children, Anna, and Robbie Moore. The exhibition will open on May, 18, 2023, and run through June 8th, 2023, at Broadmoor Galleries located at The Broadmoor, 1 Lake Avenue, Colorado Springs, CO 80906.

WHO:      Featuring:
                 Robert Moore, Anna Moore, and Robbie Moore

WHEN:    Thursday, May 18th, from 4-8PM

WHERE:  Broadmoor Galleries at the Broadmoor Hotel
                  1 Lake Circle
                  Colorado Springs CO 80906


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.
