Bio and Artist Statement

Mark Moore

 

Artist statement

I express my deepest emotions on many types of mediums, but more recently have discovered that painting soothes the soul. I am inspired everyday by this majestical land we live in. Life is so beautiful, and I wish to convey its beauty on canvas. I can only hope to touch the lives of many people and to give them everlasting pleasure. I want to make others feel as beautiful as the pieces I create. People are very much like art and is truly a matter of interpretation.

Bio

 

I was born in Southern Ohio. When I was a young boy I sat down and started to draw, I think I could draw before I could write. My parents moved me and my 3 brothers to Columbus, Ohio when I was around 10 yrs old. I did have an art class in grade school, but other than that I haven't had any formal training as far as art goes . I have always done art in some form or another since early childhood. I got married young to my childhood love and now have 2 boys to complete our beautiful family. My family and I moved from Ohio to a small town in North Alabama. My mother had always wanted me to choose a career as an artist, but I had always chosen to keep my art private. I started sharing my art about 8 yrs ago in the form of murals for friends , family, and local businesses . My mother passed away in 2009 and I found an empty spot in my life, to fill that emptiness I started to do paintings on canvas . As time went on, I was painting so much that it was time to take it further and here I am showing my work to anyone that will look. My work fills a gap in my life and hopefully it can fill a gap for someone else as well .
