My name is Gemma Moore. I live in North Herefordshire and I am an art student, currently pursuing Fine Art BA (Hons). I am a self-motivated, creative and intriguing artist who reads the world through an articulate and explorative eye, which I want to share with the rest of the world. I use my surroundings and environments as a spring-board to inspire new and exciting projects. Local villages, towns, churches and ruins, such as historic castles, intrigue me. I enjoy taking on commissions, please explore the site to see more. If there are any locations that could be suggested that I haven’t painted before, I would greatly appreciate it. Please do not hesitate to contact me.
My artwork has been sold to clients from all over the United Kingdom and abroad. Including London, Manchester, Ipswich, Devon, Telford, Southport, Leicester, Winchester and Canterbury. Further afield, my pieces have also been sold to clients from Ireland, Romania, Germany, Japan, Australia, Spain and the USA including Washington DC and Indiana.

“I first saw Gemma Moore’s work being exhibited at the Discovery Centre in Craven Arms in 2019, and was immediately struck by the exuberance and life filling her work. Such a beautiful and bold use of colour, coupled with fluid, expressive paintwork, make her paintings really stand out and capture your attention. I have been lucky to meet Gemma again, to see more of her work, both finished pieces and sketchbooks, and I have a copy of one of my favourite pieces hanging at home – one of the Clun Castle series. It catches my eye and makes me smile every time I see it, and there’s always something new to spot within its depths. It is clear that Gemma is a highly creative and accomplished artist, adept at handling artistic techniques and bringing a fresh, vibrant voice to the world of contemporary art.”Vinnie Martin, 2020.
“Gemma Moore was the 2018 winner of the £1,000 Caitlin’s Kickstart Award ww.caitlinskickstartaward.org.uk [see the 2018 Old Ludlovian cover below]. Gemma draws and paints with an authoritative and lively sense of line and colour. Although some of her earlier prize-winning architectural and rural pieces, frequently drawn from her home in Herefordshire, were inspired by David Hockney’s interpretation of his own Yorkshire landscape, Gemma’s unique talent is clear and exciting.”Linda Hurcombe, author and founder of The Caitlin Hurcombe Kickstart Fund, reg. charity 1092350

“Gemma’s image really captures the atmosphere of the fairground, which was because she used a slow shutter speed. Looking at the photo is just like being there!”Martin Parr, British Photographer
“Gemma has a genuine passion for her art, shows real maturity in giving her best and this shines through into her commissions. I was very impressed, actually rather overwhelmed when Gemma showed me the finished painting of “Tara” (below) – captivating Tara’s personality and likeness so vividly. It hangs proudly in the lounge above her special chair. Anyone who wants their pet captured on canvas, Gemma will do a fantastic job for you.”Client, 2020
