Stephen Moore is an artist known for the color and light quality in his paintings. He is a native of North Carolina.
Stephen is a graduate of UNC in Chapel Hill and retired from a 34-year career in family medicine in 2015. He was taught by Eleanor Seng, a North Carolina artist who studied with Emil Holzhaurer, a student of Robert Henri. Stephen was taught by Eleanor at a community art center in Burlington, NC. After a hiatus of around 10 years they rekindled their relationship in Chapel Hill. Eleanor was a mentor and dear friend.
Stephen has been painting and showing since 1980. He has traveled and painted extensively in Europe. Painting interests also include coastal and other North Carolina scenes with an emphasis on local color.
Though primarily a landscape painter practicing plein air techniques and studio painter, he is also interested in portrait, figurative, and still-life genres. He works in his studio in Beaufort NC.
His work is held in the corporate collections of SAS, Jordan and Price Lawfirm, Rex Hospital, Family Medical Associates of Raleigh, and Duke Raleigh Hospital to name but a few.
