If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
not very patient for all the details in my work. I just happen to be very talkative with my brushes and pencils.
About my artwork
Similar to what a detailed writer might employ in their analysis of an individual, I portray not only the physical attributes, but more importantly the subjects inner presence of life. It's not too obvious as my work appears most detailed, but I understand my approach as both representational and lyrical, using marks like words and textured areas like paragraphs. All parts of a whole, telling a story about a human being.
I work in a style that most people refer to as photorealism or hyperrealism but not as an end in itself. I use various media and techniques, like oil on canvas, charcoal drawings on canvas, graphite, pastel, digital and video art. I use photos as references for my hyperrealistic drawings and paintings but I am not after a perfect reproduction at all. I use a photo very loosely once the proportions are established. I usually work as if I were drawing from a live model actually. I work with movement and expression, working fast on larger, more unimportant areas, and slowing down on parts that need more attention. I am actually improvising a lot. My main concern is to capture the essence and substance of forms in order to get close to a perceptible presence of the subject and to create some kind of atmosphere within the boundaries of the two dimensions of the surface.

Your drawings are sensational a truly gifted artist! Do you exhibit internationally?
My name is Moira and I was a figurative artist but am going away from the figure to press moulded forms from the figure as I am also interested in the essence of life and organic sculpture, Thanks it was uplifting to see your work.
