Mind of Artist - Art Museum in Peoria, AZ
Nancy Christy-Moore is an example of what every artist dreams of accomplishing in his or her career. She has a catalog of work that is high in quality, completeness and consistency of vision. She has been published in magazines like Horses in Art(cover), Best if American Mixed Media Artists and Artisans Vol. 1, 2007, the cover of American Poetry Journal, along with many calendars and bulletin covers. She has been given dozens of One Person exhibitions since 1992 and awards and accolades too numerous to recount here.

Of her working methods, she has written that she has for more than thirty years painted by bringing order out of chaos. Instead of laying down a controlled composition at the beginning, she prefers to begin with layers of color laid down abstractly, loosely relying on happy accident as she pushes, pours and plasters paint in swirls and slashes. This is artistic emotion and expression at its most intense and leads to an identification later with the subject matter that is binding and fully integrated. Nobody does it better than Nancy Christy-Moore.
