Stephanie Moore, Apple Valley, CA Member Since May 2009 Artist Statement Not wanting to be one of those people who went through life saying “ I always wanted to be an artist, writer, etc.” Stephanie began painting in 1995.
Her favourite subject is medieval Judaica, but she also paints horses, children, Japanese geisha girls and she has done a series on Eve in the style of Norval Morisseau.
