“When I become still and look closely at what is around me, it is like walking into another world. It is that world, that perspective, that I love to paint.”
Kathleen Moore is a visual artist who paints and draws with a variety of materials to capture moments of awe, from vast, stormy skyscapes to the intimate amazement by a single flower. "The natural world," Moore explains, "has an overwhelming power to make you stop and and reconsider your position and role on the planet. I paint and draw to record a sensation of interconnectedness and fragility of life. This is why the arts are so important, they serve as reminders that we are at once greater, and lesser, than we believe."
Challenging belief, or what we believe we see, is a recurring theme in the classes and workshops Moore teaches. "I'm like a fitness coach," Moore chuckles, "I get students moving with exercises to build their skills in drawing and painting, then we do the "yoga" part where students learn to stretch how and what they perceive."
Originally from Texas, Moore has lived in the Seattle area since 1990. She received her BA in art from West Texas A&M University then continued her study of painting at Bruchion School in Los Angeles, CA and Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, WA.
