Ian Moore

Born in Lincolnshire in August 1957. Ian completed a course with the Open College of the Arts and for several years has been a member of the Littlegarth painting group led by Colchester artist and tutor Stephen Taylor, based at Dedham, Essex. Living at Mulberry Cottage, The Street, Bawdsey, Woodbridge, Suffolk and working full-time at Felixstowe Ferry Boatyard, requires a commute by a clinker built rowing boat that he built, over the River Deben or, on stormy days, a long drive, however his part-time occupation of painting is based at his studio at Butley, near Woodbridge. He paints mainly in oils, the majority of his work being depictions of elements within the coastal landscape, both locally and on the Hebridean Islands which he visits annually. Recently Ian has been concentrating on trees and hedgerows in local landscapes with the importance of accuracy of colour and detail. He has exhibited in Suffolk at Halesworth Cut Arts Centre; Blackthorpe Barns, Rougham; Suffolk Open Studios; Brandeston Village Hall; Pond Gallery, Snape Maltings; Peter Pears Gallery, Aldeburgh; Spiral Gallery, Debenham; Cathedral Gallery, Bury St Edmunds and at Taplin Gallery, Woodbridge.
