“Artist, author, and instructor/creative coach. I have a diverse background as a visual communicator: Advertising and design, fine art, plein air (location painting), illustration (35 years) where I worked in almost every medium and style you can think of… except maybe egg tempera and marble. And I’ve made kind of an interesting discovery, the creative process behind all of these approaches is pretty much the same.
As an instructor, I am taking my years of acquired knowledge from illustration, graphic design, location painting, teaching Critical thinking and the aforementioned topics and morphing them together in my work and in what I teach. I give people a way to access the creative spirit and broaden not just the way they paint but the way they think and play.” – Larry Moore
