New Artist at Carolina Creations Stephen Moore

Welcome to our newest artist - Stephen Moore. We have been following Stephen for years and talking to his brother about him, hoping someday to have his work in our gallery - well now we do!

Here is a little information about him -

Stephen Moore is an artist known for the color and light quality in his paintings. He is a native of North Carolina. He is a graduate of UNC in Chapel Hill and retired from a thirty four 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. Robert Henri was the leader of the Ashcan School of American Painting.

Eleanor taught him art beginning when he was in the fifth grade at a community art center. He
painted with her for twenty five plus years. She was a mentor and friend.

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, he is also interested in portrait, figurative, and still-life genres.
