Welcome to Ellen Moore Art! I am so glad you have come to see my work. I have been drawing and painting since I was a little girl and have always been interested in “figurative” subjects. I also enjoy landscape and still life work. I work primarily in oils, pastels, pencil, charcoal, and conte crayon. Take a look at my art, and for further information, purchases or commissions, you can contact me here. Enjoy!
Non-Commissioned Still Life & Landscape My Family
My family has always been my main source of inspiration. I am proud to portray through my art the love, acceptance, and tenderness I feel toward my family, and I hope to inspire my viewers through these works.

BEST OF SHOW 2016
I was awarded Best of Show in 2016 by the Pastel Society of the Southwest (PSSW). Each fall, PSSW holds an annual membership exhibition juried by a prominent, national artist. The 2016 exhibition was juried by Alain Picard, an international award winning landscape, portrait, and figurative painter. For my painting Love Letter, A Response, I used a figure from a life drawing class but added the kimono because the PSSW does not allow nudes. I previously studied Degas pastels so I decided to put the figure in a room setting. Then I decided the woman looked so forlorn, so I added the love letter at the base of the chair to add an emotional connection for the viewer to participate in the art.
