I am Krystle Moore, a Caledon, Ontario artist working in oils and watercolours. My work focuses on local landscapes (primarily fields) and still life paintings (mostly flowers) - so the name of my creative practice is Fields and Flowers Art.
I am inspired by local landscapes and the beauty of everyday life, and I hope my work reflects that. I love painting both moody and hopeful skies, and often stop on the side of the road to take photos for painting.
My background is in the arts: I have a BA in Visual Arts (York University, 2004) and a Master’s in Art History, (Western University, 2008.) I worked for some time in the curatorial department of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, which influenced my artistic practice in some ways.
I recently started painting again after a lengthy hiatus due to health reasons, and I am incredibly grateful for the opportunity to paint again. I am so happy to return to my passion, and to trust my instinct and my natural eye with painting.
It is truly a privilege to paint work for your home or personal space. The life that a painting can bring to a room is so needed, especially during these times. I have such deep respect for the arts in general, and for the comfort, intimacy, and beauty that a painting can bring to a living space.
Thanks so much for supporting emerging and local artists, and I appreciate any questions or inquiries at all, so please don't hesitate to send me a message.
