About Me

 🖼️ Nancy L. Moore, OSA SCA FCA. 


🍁 Nancy L. Moore was born in Ajax, Ontario. She is currently based in Newtonville, Ontario

🎓 Nancy is a graduate of the Graphic Design Program at George Brown College. She continues to further her artistic development by attending a variety of workshops and classes.

🎨Nancy grew up in a household where art and creativity were always encouraged. She gives credit to her late father, Wayne Moore, an artist who loved nature, who gave her a solid foundation on which to build.

🖌️ Since 1997 she has been the co-owner of "Seastar Images Inc.", a graphics company located in Ajax, and although still involved in the graphic design industry, her passion has always been fine art.

👩🏼‍🎨 Nancy says: "As an artist, I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to paint and draw without boundaries. While i enjoy experimenting with different mediums, I have been drawn to working in acrylics lately. My style is largely experimental, with an emphasis on abstracting nature and landscapes. I never set out to replicate an image, but instead, strive to convey a mood or evoke an emotion using loose lines, rich textures and bold colours."

🏛️ Nancy is a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, Society of Canadian Artists, Ontario Society of Artists and Artist Network, Toronto. Her art has been exhibited at galleries in Cobourg, Port Perry, Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa, Collingwood, London and Toronto.

🫶Nancy has donated her artwork to several community causes. Recently she donated the proceeds from the sale of prints of her Remembrance Day painting, "The Poignance of Poppies", to benefit those who have served our country.

Biography

Born in Ajax, Ontario I grew up in a household where art and creativity were always encouraged. I credit my late father, Wayne Moore, an artist who loved nature, with giving me a solid foundation on which to build. Truth be told, both of my parents were quite creative and always encouraged being artistic; lucky for me. 

I graduated from George Brown (Toronto) Graphic Design Program and since 1997, I’ve been the co-owner of Seastar Images Inc. a graphics/signage company that services the GTA and surrounding area. Although I continue to be involved in the graphics industry, my real passion has, and always will be, fine art. 

I further my artistic development by attending a variety of workshops and classes. I feel one never knows what path one's artistic future might take, so it's important to learn new skills.

As an artist, I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to paint and draw without boundaries. While i enjoy experimenting with different mediums, I have been drawn to working in acrylics lately. My style is largely experimental, with an emphasis on abstracting nature and landscapes. I never set out to replicate an image, but instead, strive to convey a mood or evoke an emotion using loose lines, rich textures and bold colours.

I feel it’s important to contribute to the artistic community. For the past six years, I have donated paintings for the annual Drawing for Art Fundraiser, at the Station Gallery in Whtby, Ontario. I have donated artwork to the Art of Giving charity auction organized by United Way and York Region to benefit those in need in 2017 and 2020. I was also invited to be the guest feature artist and I donated artwork for the 32nd Annual Sportsman Night run by the Cobourg Rotary Club in February 2017.

I was proud to donate my first Remembrance Day poppy print, The Poignance of Poppies, for my good friend’s FUNdation, @scgfundation, who donated the proceeds to those who served our country. Prints are still available.

I enjoy showing across southern Ontario including galleries in Cobourg, Port Perry, Ajax, Whitby, Oshawa, Collingwood, London and, of course, Toronto.
