Sandra Moore

Artist Statement

I am a painter and a mother. Painting is my self indulgence. I paint the people and things that strike me as emotive images. I like simple, strong compositions and enjoy color. I paint to tell a story, evoke a feeling or express my personal view of life. The cars I paint are as much about the people who would drive them as they are about great color and lines. I enjoy painting people because they are the most beautiful, complex and challenging, subject I know. Every day that I can paint is a gift.
