Welcome to Ellen Moore Art! I am so glad you have come to see my work. Since I was a little girl, I have been drawing and painting and have always been interested in “figurative” subjects. I also enjoy landscape and still life work. I work primarily in oils, pastels, graphite , charcoal, and Conte crayon. Take a look at my art, and for further information, purchases or commissions, you can contact me here. Enjoy!
These paintings I’ve been commissioned to create, It has been a joy to work with clients to translate their visions into works of fine art.
These works represent subjects that have inspired me or I have drawn from life. Some are from photographs or are combinations of life drawings and creativity.
Drawings capture the mood and subject immediately and with spontaneity. Whether as a sketch for a future painting or as a solitary work, it all starts with A LOVE OF DRAWING!
I am inspired by beauty all around me- whether in nature, going for a walk or seeing a lovely flower arrangement, I am awe struck and must capture it right then.

I was awarded Best of Show in 2016 by the Pastel Society of the Southwest (PSSW). PSSW holds an annual membership exhibition juried by a prominent national artist each fall. 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.
