Jay Moore has become well-known for his tranquil landscapes that epitomize the beauty and grandeur of the West. He grew up in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains and as a boy loved climbing trees, hiking and fishing. He attended the Colorado Arts Institute in Denver and Art Students League of Denver and subsequently worked as a designer and illustrator. Moore melded his two loves and evolved into a prolific plein air painter.
Moore loves wilderness and backcountry and travels the West in search of beauty. His travels have taken him around Colorado and the mountain states and west to California, Canada, Alaska and Hawaii. His trademark is the ability to capture the serenity of nature in every season, from colorful autumn foliage to icy rivers in the heart of winter. He is especially adept at painting the effects of water, rendering reflections, ocean vistas and meandering rivers with affection and skill.
