Joy Moore

"The fundamental concepts of my art derive from my emotional response to the natural world, to the colour, space, light and energy in the landscape. I can be inspired by the smallest detail of nature or the size of a mountain range. I aim to paint the essence of the landscape not the view of it."

Iris Dyptich - Acrylic on canvas 80 x 40 cm
