Jay Moore (1964-) is a Colorado native who began his career, as so many fine artists have, as an illustrator. Moore credits his work with Clyde Aspevig at the Art Students League of Denver as a pivotal point in his decision to turn to fine art. Beyond actual form and color Jay has a wider and richer frame of reference. He responds to the magnitude and scale of the western landscape by depicting his subject in large-scale paintings—often using bodies of water to orient the viewer’s eye horizontally through the canvas.
