Artist Bio – Krystle Moore
Krystle Moore is a Caledon, Ontario artist working in oils and watercolours. Inspired by the local landscapes, her paintings are informed by a collective imprint of the area that has influenced her life since early childhood.
Her landscapes are inspired by the changing seasons in the Caledon area, she loves painting the emotion in both the land and the sky. Painting in studio or en plein air in the surrounding farmer's fields, she also often stops on the side of the road to take reference photos for painting.
Krystle is a graduate of Fine Art at York University in Toronto, Ontario, in 2004 with a BA in Visual Arts and a Master’s in Art History from Western University, in London, Ontario in 2008. She lives in the small village of Alton in Caledon with her husband and daughters.
After years of chronic illness and health challenges, capturing the beauty of the landscape is a way of establishing that I am still here. I am incredibly grateful for my ability to see, and paint again, after a tumour compressed my optic nerve and I lost my vision for a few months. After my vision was restored with surgery, I noticed every nuance of colour and light in the space around me. It is my intention in my work to notice the subtle colours and delicate beauty in the local landscape, and to capture it in a way that brings calm energy into a personal space. For me, the landscape represents our resilience, and grounds and holds us during turbulent times.
