The Fifthsister Story
Connie Moore, M.Ed., began her career as an artist in 2003 when she opened a digital art studio and gallery in Waynoka, Oklahoma. (Waynoka is a cute little town in a rural setting … though not an especially keen environment for selling art, it is an amazing “uptown” gallery! Come visit! It is worth the trip.) …. In the summer of 2011 her creative journey in layered mixed media abstract art began. She discovered her love for this art process and was heavily influenced by the vast artistic community of Mendocino, California. (Mendocino is a gorgeous setting and creativity easily flows here. It, too, is worth the time, money and effort to visit.) In the summer of 2014, her creativity took yet another turn when she attended a week-long workshop from world-known master artist, Charles Becker. Then in 2016 she began working with world-known master artist, Brian Davis to further her technique in still life oil realism. The contrast of striving for a realistic outcome as opposed to the spontaneity of the abstract art pieces opened up new levels of fun for her. Opposites of the discipline required with the realism in the still life oil and the energy of the free flow of the acrylic abstract keeps the artwork process fresh and moving forward.
Connie enjoys a quiet life on a farm north of Waynoka, Oklahoma with her husband and greatest supporter, Richard L. Moore, Ph.D. and their dog, Zoe.
They also spend several months per year at their coastal home in Mendocino, California.
