Surprise, Arizona artist, Nancy Christy-Moore, is an internationally collected award winning painter celebrating the joy of color, energy and movement in her contemporary abstract mixed water media work.
Education at Columbia College, Columbia, Missouri, the American Academy of Art in Chicago, and Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles led me into teaching and exhibiting my work for the past thirty-plus years. Classes with highly acclaimed water media artists in southern California during the early '80's influenced both my painting and teaching styles which I pass on in classes and workshops along with newly acquired insights and techniques.
My unique signature style of "Inner Painting" develops my colorful contemporary art from within on a subconscious level and reflects my love of horses, florals and energetic, free-flowing colors. My horse series results from a lifetime love of horses and speaks to the power and energy I connect with when painting them. My florals and abstracts reveal my underlying romance with color combinations and subtleties of texture. I have had over 20 solo exhibits, with two in Japan.
I accept creative commissions and welcome working with clients and designers. Included in many private and corporate collections worldwide, my paintings have appeared in museums, the Louisville International Airport Altitude Travelers Club, and as limited edition prints for the Hyatt Regency hotel chain. In 2007 Kennedy Publications selected me for its "Best of America Mixed Media Artists and Artisans Vol. 1". I was cover artist for the Summer 2011 issue of "Horses in Art" and the Official Artist for Menlo Charity Horse Show 2012. I was made Signature Artist at IEA (International Equine Artists)in 2013. I have been invited to exhibit at the 2013 and 2015 Florence Bianniale, Florence, Italy. I have produced a series of instructional videos on water media techniques featured on You Tube, and a 42 minute DVD, "Nancy Christy-Moore Painting Together Again".
