Artist Statement

Melinda Moor_portrait_For Artists of PBC

"Light is the essence of spirit in it’s purest form, so it is a key ingredient in my art. A fleeting expression, a bird taking wing, clouds and sea; everything is transient and everything is permanent when captured by the camera.

My desire is to bring a soulfulness and spirit to my work that engages the viewer, creating an emotional bond with the environment and it's creatures.

Melinda Moore resides in Florida but has spent much of her life traveling and living abroad, her camera is her constant companion. Observation of people and nature has been her life long fascination, she started studying photography when she was eighteen. With the new digital age her vision has expanded, she enjoys adding personal, slightly surreal alternative techniques, using texture montage and composite. It is a new art form called photo based mixed media. Since 2008 when she began exhibiting her work she has received many awards, exhibited in universities, museums and is in numerous private collections. She was recently invited to join the National Association of Women Artist.
