Artist Statement

My paintings reflect my love for the beauty of the nature which surrounds us. I love to travel, but during Covid I was thankful to be able to get out and enjoy the natural beauty of the area in which we live and share my love of nature through my paintings.

About the Artist

Betty Moore has been a resident of Blacksburg, Virginia, for most of her life. She graduated from the College of William and Mary in 1970 with a Bachelor of Arts in fine arts and from Radford University in 2003 with a Master of Fine Arts degree. She retired in 2009 after teaching art in Montgomery County Public Schools for 22 years. She began at Christiansburg Middle School and spent the last 12 years teaching at Christiansburg High School. She loved having the opportunity to share her passion for art with her students and still finds it very gratifying to keep in touch with former students. Since retiring, Betty stays busy with painting, gardening, and traveling to visit her children and six grandchildren who live out of state. She is a signature member of the Virginia Watercolor Society and has been a member of the Blacksburg Regional Art Association and the Montgomery Museum for many years. .
