FAMOUS ARTIST Nancy Christy-Moore
“I ‘m always surprised by the images that evolve using this adventurous process. This process allows me to feel the paintings coming through me, as if I were a conduit or
spiritual medium. What fun !”.
My art education began at Columbian Christian College in Missouri and continued at two commercial art schools: American Academy of Art in Chicago and Art Center School in Los Angeles. I didn‘t seek a career in commercial art, Dut instead married, had a child and didn’t return to my art until my late 30’s when, after an epiphany, I chose to pursue painting as a fine artist. Starting as a watercolor artist after discovering an allergy to oil paints, I soon moved into the world of mixed media and abstract art and began teaching and exhibiting my art in the Southern California areas where I lived.
Years later when relocafing to Kansas, I continued exhibiting my work in galleries and art centers, ancl teaching in aclult eclucation non-creclit classes
for both iunior colleges ancl art centers as I had in California. When we relocated to Arizona, I
continue teaching workshops for art centers and art groups around the state and extibiting my work in galleries, museums and art centers.
I have fact over 20 solo exhibits, with two in Japan and I have received many honors and awards over the past thirty-plus years of my painting career. I feel blessed to be able to continue painting, teaching and exhibiting my work at this stage of my life.
Making my paintings happen by creating chaos and bringing order to it is my trademark style which has developed over my painting career. Using intuitive painting techniques (I call it “inner painting”) and drawing on my subconscious for imagery, I compose paintings as I go, rather than planning ahead as I was taught. /V\y paintings are built using a layering process the encourages spontaneity and emotional engagement. Using strong colors combined with energetic movement I can express my emotional attachments while telling the story I find revealed in each painting as I bring it to completion.
